On Aug. 21, the moon will fully block the sun, engulfing some states in darkness
I picked this topic so I could be able to understand what a eclipse is. Basically they're three different types of solar eclipses. There is a solar eclipse, partial solar eclipse, and a annular solar eclipse. This year we are lucky to watch this one in a lifetime experience solar eclipse. The moon will be covering the sun causing darkness.
It is never safe to look directly at the sun's rays - even if the sun is partly obscured. When watching a partial eclipse you must wear eclipse glasses at all times.
