Portland's air is moderately bad, but in Grants Pass a few days ago, it had the worst in the country. Portland's air currently had an Air Quality Index of 64, which is measured at moderate. Usually, Portland's air is at the "good" level of 0-50. While this air quality hardly compares to the city's air quality earlier this month, when Portland's air was worse than Shanghai's, it is nonetheless smoggier than normal. Unfortunately, it's going to get worse tonight. Fortunately, it's only going to get a little bit worse, says meteorologist David Bishop at the National Weather Service. "Our forecast has it clearing out Tuesday, when this will clear out is all going to depend on when we get our onshore winds to start coming in," Bishop says. "As we start approaching Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon, the vast majority of the smoke should be out of the area." Bishop says the smoke is coming from fires burning in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Smoke from these fires are affecting the air quality of other Oregon towns drastically. Right now, Grants Pass has the highest AQI in the United States, measuring at 241, which is considered "very unhealthy." To compare, e ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - With thrilling cosmic clockwork, the moon will pass in front of the sun Monday, casting a 70-mile-wide shadow that will sweep across the United States from coast to coast, giving millions along the "path of totality" a chance to marvel at one of nature's grandest spectacles, a total eclipse of the sun. It is the first solar eclipse visible from the United States since 1979 and the first to cross the entire continent in 99 years. Some 12 million people live in the path of totality, and many experts expect that number to at least double when veteran eclipse chasers, armchair astronomers and the merely curious rush in, possibly at the last minute. "So instead of being 12 million, we're expecting 20 plus," said Rick Fienberg, a spokesman for the American Astronomical Society. Weather permitting, and with eye safety in mind -- everyone in the continental United States, Canada, Central America and the northern quarter of South America will enjoy a partial solar eclipse, with the moon blocking some or even most of the sun as the three-hour event unfolds. But for the millions of residents who live in the 14 states along the path of totality, along with m ...

Total Solar Eclipse. On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to a total eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature's most awe-inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. A million people may flock to Oregon over the coming week to view perhaps to some, a once in a lifetime event. Oregon officials said Tuesday that they're as prepared for the eclipse. Govenor Kate Brown declared a state of emergency, but it's mostly to clear red tape so state and local agencies can work together to respond to any problems that arise.

BACKGROUND

When seen from Earth, a solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. This makes the Moon fully or partially (partly) cover the sun. Solar eclipses can only happen during a new moon. Every year about two solar eclipses occur. Sometimes there are even five solar eclipses in a year. However, only two of these can be total solar eclipses, and they are quite uncommon. The area of a total eclipse is only a narrow track along the Earth. The total shadow of the moon in front of the sun lasts only a few minutes. Outside this path, all eclipses are partial, a ...
