Eclipses have always fascinated and inspired people. They are one of nature’s most awe-inspiring moments. There’s even one story that says Thomas Edison’s light bulb discovery was inspired by the solar eclipse of July 29, 1878. Back then, Thomas Edison along with other scientists, including physicist George Barker, and Edwin Marshall Fox, a journalist for The New York Herald traveled to Rawlins, Wyoming. Baron later wrote that the trip to Rawlins "helped foster the creation" of Edison's incandescent bulb. You can read more about this story here.

 

 

 

Today’s total solar eclipse will be visible in 14 states, moving diagonally from Oregon in the northwest to South Carolina in the southeast. The Moon will completely block out light from the Sun at 10:16 am Pacific time (1:16 pm Eastern, or 1716 GMT) and the entire eclipse will take four hours and four minutes to make its way from coast to coast. If you’re planning to watch it, make sure you avoid eye damage by using special solar glasses or darkened welder's glass when looking at the Sun.
