The nation's first total solar eclipse since 1979 and the first to cross from the West Coast to the East Coast since 1918, the 2017 eclipse will cross from OR to SC and "the path of totality" along the way will be up to 70 wiles wide.
"The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as "eclipse glasses" or handheld solar viewers", AAS writes on its eye safety website. Chabot Space & Science Center will open from 8 a.m.to 1 p.m. for telescope viewings and will feature a live feed of the total eclipse in the museum's theater.
Other Georgia state parks are hosting kayak, paddling and pontoon boat rides around the time of the eclipse. They will also hear from special guest speakers including meteorologists, astronomers and a NASA scientist.
And while solar eclipse glasses will be a popular option for viewing the total solar eclipse, beware, there are glasses on the market that are not safe. The registration deadline is July 31.
The approaching August 21 solar eclipse, which will traverse the continental United States, is expected to cause numerous disruptions, as curious Americans take time off or even travel to witness the celestial anomaly.

On Monday, August 21 the sun, moon and Earth will line up in an act of cosmic serendipity that will turn day across the 2,680-mile width of the United States.
Steven Greenlee, spokesperson for CAISO, told Vox: "Our solar plants are going to lose over half of their ability to generate electricity during the two to two and a half hours that the eclipse will be impacting our area".
Naturally, solar-powered generators on the path of totality will be affected the most, as the moon will block all direct sunlight for up to three minutes.
Many libraries and eye doctor offices have been handing out officially approved glasses free of charge, but most report they are running out.
Plan ahead and move to a safe and legal area prior to the eclipse so you can enjoy the experience.
EIA said during the eclipse, generators in the area will need to increase their output to account for diminished solar capacity.
As young kids try to catch a glimpse too, it's important to make sure they're using those glasses properly so they don't end up with lasting damage. "It's nearly like wearing a blindfold". Lancaster is about 600 miles from the closest part of the eclipse's path.
In Idaho, officials are estimating as many as a million people could descend on the state.
The Colorado Department of Transportation is warning everyone who is planning to drive to Wyoming or Nebraska to view the total eclipse to be prepared for a lot of traffic, delays, and headaches. They have issued an alert to drivers about how easily a vehicle can spark a blaze.
