The eclipse will shake up day time temperatures

21, the United States will be in the path of a total solar eclipse, which will stretch for about 70 miles and be visible from coast to coast.

There are safe ways to view the eclipse, like making your own pinhole camera or buying certified viewing glasses.

The shadow will hit American soil around 10:15 Newport, Oregon.

Mom, Rebecca, remembers watching her first eclipse in high school with a homemade viewing device. "If you don't enjoy this phenomenon safely I worry that we will see people that suffer this kind of damage to their eyes". In Hyannis, the eclipse will peak at 2:49 p.m. with 64 percent obstruction.

He said eye doctors are concerned about people trying to stare at the sun without proper protection because you can get solar retinopathy.

The American Astronomical Society (AAS) has warned that the market is being flooded by counterfeit eclipse glasses that are labeled as if they're compliant with the worldwide safety standard for filters enabling direct viewing of the Sun, but in fact are not.

A total solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, completely blotting out the sunlight. This is especially true during all of the phases when the moon is only partially blocking the sun.

"Only when the moon fully blocks the sun, are you safe to look at the eclipse directly".

To add on to that, 1776 was the last time there was an eclipse like this, that traveled across the continent.

When you look at the sun, your eyes focus the light through your lens into the back of your eye at the retina. These protective shades make it possible for observers to look directly at the sun before and after totality. Eclipse glasses meeting ISO 12312-2 standards are very different than sunglasses.

Keep an eye on children using solar filters.

To help tamp down on fraud, the AAS posted a list of verified vendors and websites where those eclipse glasses are sold.
