Specs of Madison handing out free safety glasses for the upcoming eclipse

Millions of spectators are expected to flock to cities across the US next week to witness the ultimate light show: the total solar eclipse.

Even as makers of certified, safety-tested solar eye ware rushed to meet surging demand before the August 21 eclipse, they have joined astronomers and optometrists in warning of defective knockoffs flooding the US market. Smithville Park in Eastampton is hosting a Solar Eclipse Viewing Party that will allow participants to safely see our portion of the event.

Even though the glasses might look a little amusing, there's nothing amusing about eye damage. But if you're in metro Atlanta, you will still be able to see 95 percent or more of a partial eclipse. Eclipse watchers can view the eclipse from horseback, on a cruise ship, from the top of a mountain or at a campground.

Not wearing them could result in lasting damage called solar maculopathy, or a sunburn to the retina.

"It is going to be, without question, the most incredible and incomparable natural - or perhaps any - phenomenon you will see in your lifetime", he said.

"We want everyone to know the eclipse is coming and we want people to know not to look directly at the sun", Berry told CNN. Or perhaps you're someone who has to sit this one out at work and wait for the next solar eclipse in 2024. This "path of totality", where the darkest part of the moon's shadow hits the Earth, is only 60 miles wide.

Sen. Lindsey Graham: Dems Must 'Park Their Hatred' of Trump
One former Republican senator is calling on Congress to use the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office. If that indeed were to happen, he said , it would require Democrats to "take their hatred of Donald Trump and park it".

If you're watching from the path, totality will feel eerie.

What do I need to see it? Most parts of the US will witness a partial solar eclipse.

Depending on the duration of exposure and the intensity of the light, the damage can happen suddenly or gradually, with vision problems appearing up to a few weeks later, said Dr. Melissa Barnett, a principal optometrist at UC Davis Eye Center.

Earlier this week, AAS updated its safety advice on purchasing glasses and released a list of approved vendors in response to alarming reports of unsafe "eclipse viewers" popping up online, the company said. The Mayborn Science Theater will host a special viewing of the total solar eclipse August 21. This should provide new insights into how the incident solar energy in our atmosphere changes when particles, clouds and in this case the moon, prevents sunlight from reaching the surface of the planet. This occurs when the Earth passes between the sun and the Moon. Sometimes a lunar Eclipse.

It might seem unusual that the moon is able to cover the sun because it's 400 times smaller. During the eclipse, as the moon's shadow starts to block the sun's light, some of the sun's fiery disk will still be visible, according to .
