But outside of a narrow path, most of the country will see the moon only partially cover the sun.

"When (we) started preparing for the solar eclipse, we told people to look for the eclipse glasses with the worldwide safety standard 12312-2", he said. It will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the United States since 1979.

"The path of totality is a relatively thin ribbon, around 70 miles wide, that will cross the US from west to east", school officials said.

If you don't already have trustworthy eclipse glasses, your chances of finding them in the Charlotte area are fading as fast as the sun will next Monday. Be careful where you're buying your protective eye wear. Special "eclipse glasses" will also be available for unmagnified viewing of the eclipse.

The company started notifying its customers about the unverified eclipse glasses, mentioning that they do not meet industry standards.

Experts warn that eclipse viewers should never try to make do with ordinary sunglasses - retinal damage can result.

Troland says the eclipse will create a totality zone that will span 70 miles wide and lie across the southwestern parts of Kentucky.

According to Martin McHugh, Loyola associate professor of physics, New Orleans may see things get a little darker when the moon has its maximum coverage at 1:29 p.m. Be cautious if you can see other lights or brightness through the glasses. It's a rare event many people want to take in, but if you don't protect yourself, you could put your eyes at risk for some long-term damage.

That has made it hard for some, who did not plan ahead, to find glasses to adequately protect their eyes in order to safely view the eclipse.
