In addition, eclipse safety glasses will be provided. The peak of the eclipse is expected to occur at 1:07 p.m. Well, thing is the only safe time to look directly at the eclipse is during totality-when the moon completely covers the sun-which will only take place along the "path of totality", a 70-mile-wide swath stretching from OR to SC during a two-minute period in each area it passes over.
Jamie Ellis, NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador says, "All of this is only visible when it's in totality, because in regular sunlight the atmosphere of the sun is not easily seen, very, very little, but when we have totality, this event really allows us to get data".
