But before you grab the first pair of "eclipse glasses" you find online, eye professionals are warning you to be careful of unapproved, or even discount/counterfeit glasses that might not provide any protection at all. However, in Madison - where a maximum of 85 percent of the sun will be blocked by the moon at about 1:15 p.m. - that won't be an option.

"With a solar eclipse, you don't really need to necessarily know anything about astronomy to be captivated by it", McGowan said.

At the event, as they have been doing for weeks, the Library will also be distributing free solar eclipse glasses. Working with partners, we can protect what is special about parks so that they are there for you to enjoy. "We've heard that hotels for miles are all booked up for the eclipse, not to mention campgrounds and state parks".

As a result, demand is soaring for safe glasses for viewing it.

Solar filters that are safe produce a view of the sun that is comfortably bright, in focus and surrounded by black sky.

No matter where you are, the entire eclipse event will last about three hours, from the moment the moon first touches the disk of the sun, to its maximum extent an hour and a half in, to the point where the sun and moon separate and continue on their solitary journeys. Even if you are not in the direct line of the eclipse, you might still want to head outside to see a partial eclipse.
