If you somehow missed the news, many parts of the United States will be witness to a total solar eclipse on August 21 for the first time in over 90 years. It'll be possible to see the eclipse in at least some capacity throughout the continental U.S., although folks in parts of the pacific northwest, mid-west, and southern U.S. will be the only ones to see the total eclipse.
Whether you're travelling to view the eclipse in totality, or if you're keen to observe at home, there are a few apps on the market to help you understand just what you're looking at. Just remember, never look at the sun, even if it's partially eclipsed, directly or through your phone's camera. Get yourself some of those hip eclipse glasses.
