9:22 am
forests, national parks, farm lands, et cetera. so that means that the eclipse in order to be visible to people, either you need to go into that eclipse zone or you need to televise it from there. so hundreds of thousands of people are planning to go into that eclipse zone. >> when it comes to the west coast versus the east coast, well, we win on this one. >> there have been studies made of the entire total ecollapse over the -- eclipse over the country. on the east coast, there is a big chance of thunderstorms and clouds. for most people, the best locations turn out to be central oregon and then idaho is where the cloud cover is likely to be least. >> it is a teachable moment. >> so this is a scale model. a lot of people think that the moon is actually right here.
9:23 am
but the moon is actually 30 earth diameters away from the earth. >> and a chance for everyone to look up and see something we rarely get to see. >> well, i think it is a really big deal. anyone who has seen a total solar eclipse from the path of totality has said the same thing. a once in a lifetime experience. >> claudine wong, ktvu fox 2 news. school districts around pennsylvania, alabama and central florida will not let students out during the eclipse because of potential harm that can be done to the eyes. the decision was made after consulting with the district physicians. don't forget we will have complete coverage on monday. our special extended coverage begins at 9:00 in the morning right here. and join us friday right here on the 9. we will be
