Humans would be watching the total solar eclipse in amazement, but some events may be lost on those who are too focused on watching the sun and moon in action.

But the USA mainland hasn't seen a total solar eclipse since 1979, when it swooped across Oregon, Washington state, Idaho, Montana and North Dakota, then into Canada.

"Going to the moon, exploring the surface of Mars, or seeing a total solar eclipse across the USA for the first time in a century are unbelievable moments that can inspire a whole new generation of explorers and scientists", Calvin Johnson, Program Manager at Google, said in a press statement. Within the path of totality, you can safely witness the two or more minutes when the moon completely covers the sun with the naked eye. Peak is scheduled for after 2 p.m on August 21.

There are just under two weeks to go until the solar eclipse and you've still got time to practise photographing the full moon at night.

Volvo Car USA and CNN plan to offer a 360-degree, 4K video shot from four locations along the total eclipse path. Viewers will be able to watch the event on a computer, smartphone or VR device, according to CNN's website.

We might want to view the August 21 eclipse as a primer to an event for our lifetime, coming right here to Pennsylvania on April 8, 2024. They'll bear a tiny picture of a globe with the letters "ISO", the initials CE and a statement that reads, "Conforms to and meets the Transmission Requirements of ISO 12312-2". The event will feature live music from Oracle Blue, free eclipse glasses, live streaming of NASA's coverage of the eclipse as it crosses the United States of America, and live streaming coverage of the aviary in the Lowcountry Zoo, among other activities.

A total solar eclipse hasn't crossed the United States since 1918, and it won't happen again until 2045. (In a lunar eclipse the Moon-Earth-Sun form a straight line).

"It's an opportunity for people to experience a celestial event like this".

And where better to fill up on eclipse T-shirts and safety glasses - and eclipse burgers - than the Eclipse Kitchen in Makanda, Illinois.

Solar-powered generators centered in the path of totality will be affected the most, as the moon will block all direct sunlight for up to three minutes.

Also for those wanting to take a closer look, make sure the binoculars have solar filters on them.

Americans will risk damaging their eyes if they look directly at the sun on the day of the solar eclipse later this month.

If, somehow, you miss the big eclipse, you've got seven years to prepare for the next one. Thanks to available technology, this solar eclipse might become the most studied one ever. There will be a noticed darkening of the sky similar to a cloud blocking the sun.

When will the eclipse take place?
