If you'll be near the California-Oregon border, Reno, the Grand Canyon, Albuquerque or Lubbock, Texas, you'll see an amazing view of the sun's corona appearing to spill over the moon's edges on all sides. It's dangerous to look directly at the eclipse so if you plan on experiencing this rare sight, protect your eyes with the proper equipment. Ned Potter of ABC News recommends No. 14 arc welders glass and Eric Holthaus with The Wall Street Journal has more recommendations if you're interested.
