Here's How to Watch the Solar Eclipse on TV

On the West coast, the eclipse is due to start a little after 9 a.m. local time and peak about 10:15 a.m. The last time the contiguous USA saw a total eclipse was in 1979.

On Monday darkness will sheath large swathes of the country in the first total eclipse to completely cross the continental USA since June 1918. Southeast Michigan isn't, but it will still get an 83-percent eclipse - meaning the region won't go completely lights-out, but the moon will cover a significant portion of the sun. There will be "celestial snacks" (Sun Chips and Mini Moon Pies) and water available, but guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets. And that could lead to the same degree of eye damage mentioned above.

Kopp said he has treated many patients with eclipse burns to their eyes. Your vision may be distorted and you could develop blind spots.

The coming new moon on Monday corresponds with the Great American Eclipse. Most of the country will see a partial eclipse on Monday.

Students at Fort Wayne Community Schools will have the chance to experience the solar eclipse in various ways.

Eclipse glasses are becoming tough to find, but you might get lucky. According to University of Missouri professor of astrophysics Angela Speck, pets don't try to look at the sun on a normal day and thus the unusual absence of daylight during the eclipse won't affect their routines. The state also urges people not to use eclipse glasses if they are scratched, wrinkled, or older than three years.

"You'll see roughly a quarter of the sun missing even as the sun comes up", said Mike Shanahan, Bishop Museum planetarium director. Read and follow any instructions printed on or packaged with the filter.

The excitement is ramping up for the upcoming total solar eclipse, which happens Monday. Experts say there's no need to outfit your dogs and cats with eclipse glasses. After glancing at the sun, turn away and remove your filter - do not remove it while looking at the sun. "Basically, the sun will look like a cookie with a bite taken out". Just about everyone in the US will be able to view the eclipsefrom the safety of their home, or even from their smartphone whilein line at the coffee shop.

-Never look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars or other similar devices.

Health officials recommend a special solar filter - either eclipse glasses or a handheld solar viewer - to see the eclipse.
