Unsafe solar eclipse glasses with fake safety labels are 'flooding' the market

Solar eclipse lights way for Southern Californians eager for 'one of nature's spectacles' The eclipse to eclipse them all

And if there is just one simple fender-bender while the traffic is as thick as some are thinking, I have heard one prediction saying I-77 traffic could be a parking lot from Columbia, SC to Lake Norman!

A total solar eclipse is an incredible thing - something I deeply believe should be experienced by adults and children alike.

Whether you're an astronomy buff, outdoors enthusiast or simply someone interested in space, you'll want to get yourself within the quite narrow path of totality-the cross section of the United States where the earth, moon and sun will fully align-on August 21.

"Still, it will be dark for the afternoon", she said.

Yes, you really need them, and yes, you need to check if the cheapo glasses you can buy at your nearest convenience store or hobby shop are safe. I remembered how fun it was to have her in the auto with me, just talking about ordinary things.

The Aug. 21 event has been billed as "The Great American Eclipse" because it will cross the country coast-to-coast from OR to SC, the best eclipse for Americans in 99 years.

The nation's first total solar eclipse since 1979 and the first to cross from the West Coast to the East Coast since 1918, the 2017 eclipse will cross from OR to SC and "the path of totality" along the way will be up to 70 wiles wide. We understand eclipses so well now there are apps to tell you precisely when it's OK to look up and when to look back down.

"And the effect will depend heavily on local weather".

The total eclipse can also be viewed for about a minute in Pawleys Island and areas in the western part of the county including Andrews.

So what's the big deal about the path of totality? In addition, the Capitol Reef Natural History Association will sell special eclipse-viewing glasses at the visitor center bookstore for a nominal free.

"It's wonderful to think that when the last solar eclipse crossed the United States coast-to-coast, an artist's painting or perhaps a photograph was the best way to share it. Thanks to Volvo, CNN and emerging technology, people can experience the eclipse as if they are there". Everyone in the Continental U.S. will be able to see at least a partial eclipse on this day.

Manufacturers are cranking out millions of safety glasses for the upcoming solar eclipse.

The accompanying picture shows the estimated number of people expected to visit SC for the eclipse.

If you find yourself now babbling about how the corona will be visible on the central line of the path of totality, or voice excitement at witnessing the diamond ring or the Baily's beads, know that you're not alone - and that your newfound eclipse terminology is only scratching the surface.

Dear Answer Man, my wife wants to drive to Nebraska to see the eclipse on August 21.

For those who can't attend the programs, but would still like to view the eclipse, special glasses may be purchased at the Nature Realm gift shop.

Use Gage County's free shuttle service to get around, since parking will be severely restricted in the area.

My plan is to go out with some friends for a long lunch at a restaurant with an outdoor patio. "But I think that will be a challenge the morning of the eclipse because other people will have the same idea, and I think it will be worse coming from north because people will be trying to get out of Portland". You'd better have a hotel reservation, though.

"The day of the solar eclipse is no different than any other day", Herrell said.
