"It's getting hard to find them now", he said.

"If you go to a football game and are watching it from the parking lot, that's a partial phase", he said.

In Madison on Friday, the glasses were sold out at Kirkland's on the Far East Side and at Toys R Us on the Far West Side. NASA distributed over two million free glasses and 4,000 education kits to over 7,000 libraries across the United States.

The eclipse will begin at 1:21pm. And a two-pack at Casey's General Store in Verona could be had for $2.99.

Supplies are limited, and glasses are available on a first-come, first-served basis, the library said. There will also be other games to play, as well, including Family Feud - Solar System / Eclipse edition.

We're just days away from a solar eclipse - and you're not going to want to miss it. Since your eyes wouldn't feel pain from these burns, you might not realize the damage has been done until it is too late.

With regard to humanity's fascination with solar eclipses, Stojkovic adds, "Our sun is directly related to all forms of life on Earth, so its disappearance, even for a few minutes, was historically associated with some dire predictions - like natural catastrophes, big wars, deaths of kings, etc".

You see, smartphone lenses are very small, LG is just now offering an f/1.6 aperture to let more light in, and, in general, they also have filters to restrict some of the light falling on the sensor. The full list can be found at eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters. In these cases, be sure you are not looking at the eclipse. Similar devices, called eclipse viewers, provide the same effect, so long as they are properly certified. If you are not able to make it to the narrow band of totality; don't worry, as you will still be able to view a partial solar eclipse throughout the entire United States.

An eclipse is an obstruction of light from the source of light and the observer.
