Who is excited for the total solar eclipse?

On Aug. 21, 2017, America will fall under its path.

The so-called Great American Total Solar Eclipse will darken skies all the way from Oregon to South Carolina, along a stretch of land about 70 miles (113 kilometers) wide. People who descend upon this “path of totality” for the big event are in for an unforgettable experience.

And this event makes for great family activities. See the videos below showing how you can make an eclipse viewer and solar eclipse cookies!

REMEMBER that during totality, when the sun’s disk is completely covered by the moon, it is safe to view the eclipse with the naked eye. But skywatchers should NEVER look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection. Looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially covered by the moon, can cause serious eye damage or blindness. See’s complete guide to find out how to view the eclipse safely.
