AAA recommends planning ahead for viewing solar eclipse

Special telescopes and eclipse glasses will be available to watch safely, and there will be a live stream of the total eclipse.

Some cell phone providers say they're working to ensure service is not interrupted.

But as demand for these glasses has skyrocketed, scams have entered the market.

Kent District Library's East Grand Rapids branch is hosting a party in honor of the upcoming solar eclipse.

Safety is an important aspect and viewers' eyes must be protected using only ISO-certified solar eclipse shades.

Some vendors are even going so far as to put falsified test results on their websites to support their bogus claims, AAS said.

"Although the partial eclipse will be visible anywhere in the continental United States, it will not compare to experiencing the total eclipse", National Park Service staff say.

In Franklin, parents are invited to come to school to view the eclipse with their child (ren).

"It just means that we haven't been able to verify that they're safe or that we simply have no information", Fienberg said.

If you've already purchased a pair of specs, AAS has a tip for testing them out.

Over a century ago, the village of Pinehurst, itself barely five years old, captured the attention of scientists and astronomers from all over the world when it was chosen as one of three ideal locations to view and record the solar eclipse of 1900.

While Bakersfield won't get totality, or a complete solar eclipse, we can expect to see about 67 percent to 73 percent of the sun obscured. It hurts. It burns our eyes, but when it's eclipsing, people still try to do that.

Ordinary sunglasses are not up to snuff.

He says the best way to find out if the glasses are safe is to try them out on a sunny day. There will be several others throughout the 21st century, though none are projected to put Bakersfield in the path of totality.

It doesn't take an actual rocket scientist, though, to tell you to buy early if you want to save some money.

Total Solar Eclipse: Occurs when the Sun's disk is completely blocked by the moon.

Cities along the path of totality include Salem, Oregon; Nashville Tennessee; and both Columbia and Charleston, South Carolina.

The Solar eclipse takes place at any given place only once every 360 to 410 years.
