According to NASA, the only safe way to look at an un-eclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, like "eclipse glasses", or hand-held solar viewers. Finally, the moon's rotation continues, creating another partial eclipse as the moon moves away from the sun.

The path of the August 21 eclipse runs from OR to SC with Hopkinsville, Kentucky being the point of greatest eclipse.

Eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers are low-priced and can be purchased from many retailers. But experts have warned that you need the right glasses to keep your eyes safe.

The eclipse, or first contact, begins in Jacksonville around 1:17 p.m. Take care looking at the sun no matter where you're watching; you should never, ever look directly into the sun without proper protection.
