Central Florida will experience the eclipse at 85 percent totality, the science center says. Never look at the sun through the pinhole.

Another total solar eclipse will travel over US soil from Texas through ME in just seven years, April 8, 2024.

NASA says the only safe way to look at the eclipse is with special objective "eclipse glasses".
"Images and data from potentially as many as millions of people will be collected and analyzed by scientists for years to come". "It makes people's jaw drop".
It is not safe to look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through regular sunglasses, unfiltered telescopes or magnifiers or cameras, polarizing filters, CDs/DVDs or space blankets.
He noted that another full solar eclipse in 2024 will affect much of the eastern USA, crossing from Texas up through New England. However, across the nation, in Columbia, South Carolina, the eclipse will begin at 1.03pm EDT and end at 4.06pm, with totality occurring between 241 and 2.44pm.

"The telephoto lens will give you enough magnification that you will clearly see some of the details in the bright corona", Nasa said. It is well documented that looking at the sun during a solar eclipse can cause solar burns or "solar retinopathy".
