City in frenzy as preparations begin. The next annular solar eclipse that can be seen in the United States will occur on October 14, 2023, and will be visible from California to Florida.

It is important to remember that even though most of the sun will be blocked here in Texoma the UV rays are still damaging to your eyes. You can replicate an eclipse by holding a flashlight and waving your hand slowly across it. NASA distributed over two million free glasses and 4,000 education kits to over 7,000 libraries across the United States. The Laramie County library is one of them, along with the Cheyenne Eye Clinic. The glasses are distributed on first come, first serve basis, so don't delay and grab your glasses before it vanishes. From Clarksville down to the Smoky Mountain National Park area you can catch the totality for durations varying from one minute to nearly three minutes.

At Eastern Washington University, you can watch with the Astronomy Club on Roos Field.

DO take pictures. If you'll be using a smartphone, your lens probably is too small to get damaged, but you can put your solar filter glasses over the lens just in case.

This is a big chance for astronomy club, which only formed a year ago, to get their name out.

"We can all appreciate and participate in the profound beauty, wonder and legacy of our universe", Elizabeth Hendricks North, president and CEO of CuriosityStream, said in the statement.

Made by the team behind the popular Sky Safari skywatching app, Eclipse Safari includes a lot of the features of other apps - it will help you find the best location for viewing and will simulate the eclipse from any given location. Some people have been planning for this rare North American solar eclipse for years, but if you're not sure of when, where or how to view it, there's an app for that.

In Coeur d'Alene, the resort has an eclipse brunch the morning of the 21st.

Solar eclipses occur when there is a new moon.

This is the first full solar eclipse to be visible in the Pacific Northwest since 1979.
