How to avoid buying 'bogus' solar eclipse glasses

A partial lunar eclipse as it appears in Texas in 2007

Officials are anxious about distracted drivers and massive traffic jams.

Meanwhile, at Lincoln School, Kearny, science teachers Elaine McCarthy and Jess McMasters will host a viewing in the Lincoln School Learning Garden that day, August 21, from 2 to 4 p.m. Officials are concerned about traffic jams and potential crashes.

In North Carolina the moon will obscure the sun from about 1 p.m.to 3 p.m. During the eclipse, trees will create myriad, shimmering images of the sun in eclipse.

And some drivers, inevitably, will stop in the middle of the road to take a selfie.

Eyes up, protective glasses on - this summer, Minnesotans will get a chance to see a partial eclipse of the sun.

You'll find glasses online and in retail stores, including paper and plastic versions, starting at a few dollars for one pair up to about $20 for a multiple pack of glasses.

Janie Baker of Lake Murray Country Tourism said if 100,000 people come for the eclipse and stayed for just one night it would generate $21 million a night.

Transportation officials are anxious not only about massive traffic jams but potential crashes that could result from drivers focusing on the skies, not the road. Watch below a video to learn how to safely use the Celestron EclipSmart solar binoculars.

Take the filter off during totality. "There's a lot of people who don't grasp how risky it is to look at the sun without eye protection". "They need to be safe in a situation like this". Unlike the 2012 event, the 2017 eclipse will be total. Scaring that creature away is one reason banging drums and making noise is still common around the world during eclipses. Experts say it's a can't-miss event.

Make plans for overnight accommodations early; overnight camping is prohibited at rest areas.

"It's fantastic 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". Add to all this the expected crowds traveling to see the show - estimated to be anywhere between 1.85 and 7.4 million people - and it becomes crucial for government agencies to have real-time situational awareness of personnel, resources and highway infrastructures. "They're not", said Dave Thompson, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Like Walter, McMullen said regular sunglasses are never appropriate for eclipse viewing.

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.

In Sisters, the view is 34 seconds; in Huntington, it's two minutes, 9 seconds. There are great options if you like spending time in the great outdoors, but Columbia also has its fair share of big city charm with a host of dining, shopping and entertainment options. All phases of the eclipse from beginning to end will last up to three hours, depending on the area.

The New York Times, the UK's Telegraph, USA Today, Fodor's Travel, Today.com, Forbes, The Boston Globe, the Chicago Tribune, Buzzfeed, Newsweek, the Washington Post, Orbitz, Expedia and more have named Columbia, S.C., as one of the best places to watch the eclipse because of its lengthy duration of "totality". The last time this happened from coast to coast was 1918.
