To help eclipse-watchers get a better sense of where the phenomenon will truly be most visible, NASA's Earth Observatory has released two alluring visualizations, produced by compiling satellite images for August 21 between 2000 and 2016.

"It's getting hard to find them now", he said.

"We have customers up and down the east coast of SC". It also has an eclipse magnitude of 1.0306. And a two-pack at Casey's General Store in Verona could be had for $2.99.

If the latter, be sure to check the safety authenticity of viewing glasses to ensure they meet standards.

By looking directly at the solar eclipse - even briefly - without proper protection, you risk a form of blindness called solar retinopathy, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

"The actual total phase only lasts a couple minutes, depending where you are on the path", he said, adding that he will be in Nebraska to view it there.

How can you truly tell if you solar eclipse glasses are safe for viewing?

"The market is being flooded with counterfeits", he said.

Eclipse viewing glasses and handheld solar viewers should have certification information with a designated ISO 12312-2 worldwide standard, have the manufacturer's name and address printed on the product, and not be used if they are older than three years or have scratched or wrinkled lenses.

We'll say this: The only thing you can see through a safe solar filter from a reputable vendor is the sun itself. The full list can be found at eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters.

Failing to protect your eyes when watching the eclipse can cause blindness because the radiation can destroy the photoreceptors in your retina, said Dr. V. Nicholas Batra, an ophthalmologist and president of the California Academy of Eye Physicians and Surgeons. 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.
