Will The Total Solar Eclipse Affect Solar Power?

The total eclipse occurs over a 70 mile wide band from OR to SC, which does not include Indiana. NOVA will also collaborate with several local public television stations along the path of totality, who will provide footage shot in their own back yards, illustrating the excitement the eclipse generates across the nation. Yeah, you'd really be doing us all a big favor.

Tanner said the Meridian region of MS will see about 89 percent of the eclipse.

Washington's Department of Transportation is anxious about what will happen if thousands of British Columbians head to OR to watch the solar eclipse later this month.

Parents and kids filled the room at the Buena Vista Museum of Natural History with excitement and curiosity about an upcoming spectacle in the sky - a total solar eclipse on Aug 21. Dallas, Texas and Russellville, Arkansas, are among the nearby locations within the totality line. During a solar eclipse, the moon passes directly in front of the sun, blocking some or all of its light from reaching Earth. Yet here's something that you may not have thought of: How will a total or even a partial solar eclipse affect homes and workplaces that use solar power? Even a thin sliver of the sun's disk covers thousands of these light-sensitive cells. "The warnings that you hear are right", Bates says. The focused sunlight can melt the filter and damage the eyes. The solar filters, which must meet the worldwide standard ISO 12312-2, are used in eclipse glasses and hand-held filters.
