Have questions about the total solar eclipse? Here are answers

Where to Mark the Great American Eclipse in NYC

Get your 'eclipse glasses' from the Boston Public Library

Eclipse watchers in the 60- to 70-mile-wide "path of totality" that will cut through much of the middle US could briefly look directly at the eclipse without protection when the moon fully covers the sun. If you are not able to make it to the narrow band of totality; don't worry, as you will still be able to view a partial solar eclipse throughout the entire United States.

The National Safety Council is recommending the following safety tips as you prepare to watch the solar eclipse.

Big events also mean big opportunities for scammers and unscrupulous businesses.

If you got your glasses or filter from somewhere such as a library, a science museum or a planetarium, you're probably safe.

The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special eclipse glasses or filters that are ISO compliant #12312-2 and CE certified. These are much more powerful than sunglasses. Cameras, telescopes and similar devices, even when paired with a solar filter, are unsafe to use during an eclipse.

The solar eclipse is just 10 days away, but we are still getting lots of questions from viewers. For more information, check out SciFri's Great American Eclipse spotlight. NASA has a handy list of reputable vendors here that you can double-check. There certainly wasn't Twitter or Facebook in 1979, but now you can expect numerous posts in your feed from across the country as people share their eclipse experiences. Always double check that a listing is on the real website and emails are coming from official addresses. "During totality, the corona has a wide range of brightness so it's best to use a fixed aperture and a range of exposures from approximately 1/1000 to 1 second". Don't deal with anyone who asks for payment outside of the platform's approved options. For people on America's west coast, the eclipse will take place during the morning, while people in the southeastern USA will see the event unfold in the afternoon.

Needless to say, social media will be aglow with images and captions as the awe-inspiring astronomical event makes its first pass through any part of the Lower 48 states in 38 years.

NASA plans to provide four hours of eclipse coverage, starting at noon EDT, on the agency's satellite television channel, in web streams and via social media, including Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Traffic will likely be heavy on any road between a major city and the eclipse path.

So what will the sun look like your proper glasses? The direct course of the eclipse slashes across the United States, beginning in OR and ending in SC.
