"And you don't want to get stuck". Hence, people travel to see a total solar eclipse and eclipse day will see many Americans on the road - adjusting their plans as some places have a cloudy forecast perhaps while others appear more promising.

Because of the sudden darkness and drop in temperature, it's very possible to witness sudden changes in animals' behavior.

"I have personally seen counterfeit glasses from China that have the logo, name, and address of a USA manufacturer but that were NOT produced by that manufacturer and are NOT known to be safe".
