Place your digital camera in "sports photography" movie mode so that when you depress the button your camera will take a continuous stream of still images.

Always supervise children using solar filters. After looking at the sun, turn away and remove your filter - do not remove it while looking at the sun. Those in the path of the penumbra will see a partial eclipse.

According to the American Astronomical Society, just four manufacturers have certified that their eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers meet the ISO 12312-2 global standard for such products: Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical and TSE 17.

The total solar eclipse on August 21 is particularly rare because it's the first time the path of totality exclusively crosses the continental United States from coast to coast since June 8, 1918. Experience totality, then, as soon as the bright sun begins to reappear, replace your solar viewer to look at the remaining partial phases.

Before we go any further, a reminder: NEVER look directly at the solar eclipse without approved viewing glasses.

The path of totality will also cut across broad swaths of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee, along with corners of Kansas, Georgia and North Carolina, and a tiny chip of Iowa. ABC News' Frank Reynolds anchored a special report on the celestial phenomenon at the time and pledged that the network would cover the next total solar eclipse in 2017. The last time the USA saw a total eclipse was in 1979.

These areas aren't usually heavily populated, but because of the momentous occasion this eclipse is considered to be, many, many people are expected to travel to them in order to witness the event.

'This will allow us to maximize our chance to collect data and connect the shadow of the moon to Earth science'. When the Earth, moon and sun line up just right, the moon blocks the sun's entire surface, creating the total eclipse.

Looking directly at the sun during the eclipse, or at any point for that matter, can have lasting consequences. That's why it looks like the same size as my moon. There will be other eclipses before this time, but none going from coast to coast. Such alignments occur about every six months.
