Here is something very cool from NASA. It simulates what the Sun will look like on August 21. "Eyes on the Eclipse" lets you explore different locations along the path of totality and where there will be a partial eclipse, or no eclipse.

You can download the app Eyes on the Skies with instructions.

If you're in California on August 21, you're not on the eclipse line of totality, but there will be some good partial eclipses. Get your eclipse glasses NOW - or be sure you know how to project the eclipse. (I saw a picture of someone using a colander to project multiple images, but I've never tried it myself!)

Here's what people may see in California.

I came across this article from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and liked its list of things to look for during a total eclipse. An eclipse is more interesting than just looking at a big black spot where the Sun should be. (That can actually be somewhat disturbing.)

What should you look for in a solar eclipse?

While World War I was tearing Europe apart in 1915, a German physicist presented a theory that would shake up the way we see the Universe. The physicist was Albert Einstein, his face still unknown to the world, his name not yet a synonym for genius. How did a solar eclipse in 1919 change all that?

One of my kids is going to drive the family to a place where they can view the total eclipse. How lucky is that?! They live in the Chicago area ... smile

Fantastic. I hope they get a good view. Seeing a solar eclipse is really an amazing experience.

Mona, didn't you provide for us a list of sites for following the eclipse? I thought I had it in my file but cannot seem to locate the email.

Angie, it was this link to the Space.Com list of live streams of the eclipse. I'll be trying out some of those myself.

The last teensy bit of yesterday's eclipse made it across the Atlantic. Here is a particularly pretty photo taken by Paulo Pereira in Portugal.
