I have heard that we will have an 86 percent sun blockage on August 21. That is pretty good. To experience the total eclipse I would have to be in South Carolina. It will be fun. I don't plan to look at it though! I was reading a story in the newspaper about a guy who chases eclipses and has seen several in his life. Will you experience the eclipse in your area? Is it total or partial?

No, it will not be visible in Europe. We had a total eclipse in 1999, I think to remember it was on August 14th. It was a very interesting experience.

@snowy22315 I remember the moment we had total darkness. The birds stopped chirping, the cicadas went silent, it was like life has stopped to wait the sun to come back.

I am not sure but according to what I looked up yes we should see it about noon here.
Which upcoming lunar and solar eclipses are visible in Denver, Colorado, USA and what do they look like?

@snowy22315 Yes I remember Mother telling me not to look at it when there was one in Missouri when I was a child.

No,, Here in Israel we won't see the eclipse. But we will look at pictures that other people will be posting! Remember that it is dangerous to even look at a total eclipse, without special eye protection. Some people get blinded for a few hours, and some even longer!

Yes, I remember reading about someone who lost 90 percent of their vision from looking at an eclipse.
