The best way to view a solar eclipse is with special, super-dark glasses made specifically for the event. On a normal day, the sun is too bright, and we naturally look away, protecting our eyes.

· Always read and follow all directions that come with the solar filter or eclipse glasses.

The American Astronomical Society, AAS, has a list of reputable vendors of manufacturers and authorized dealers of solar filters and glasses, and says glasses should carry the global safety standard number "ISO 12312-2".

That's because while those in the path of totality will experience the total solar eclipse, any one in North America will still be able to see that sun-moon action in a partial solar eclipse - though it's worth keeping in mind that the farther away one is from the path of totality, the less that eclipse effect will actually be viewable. Hidgon says you can test your glasses before the eclipse to make sure they're safe. While availability can vary widely depending on where you're at, NASA recommends looking for glasses that meet the ISO 12312-2 standard for solar protection. The eclipse can be seriously damaging to viewers eyes. The eclipse route is supposed to be from OR to SC. The path of the total solar eclipse will be passing from OR diagonally all the way through SC in the southwest.
