(WCBD) NASA has teamed up with The College of Charleston to make sure the solar eclipse is enjoyable to everyone on August 21st.

They recently published "Getting a Feel for Eclipses," to allow those who are visually impaired and blind to experience the rare event.

The book is big in size and has two pages inside. There are three tactile graphics that explain what will happen during the eclipse.

Mariah Williams recently graduated from The College of Charleston and has been blind since birth. Braille and touch is her way to communicate with the world.
