The library however, had a backup plan for those who didn't get a pair; a viewing party for kids and adults of all ages to view NASA's live streaming of the eclipse. "It's just something that gets you thinking".

Many people in the world will be having the rare chance to watch a solar eclipse on Monday.

The solar eclipse will be visible from north of Pacific, US and south of Atlantic, where the Moon will cover solar photosphere and the outermost part of the Sun's atmosphere (Chromosphere and Corona) will be seen. In the past few weeks, solar glasses became a hot commodity in the United States, but why is it so unsafe to look at a solar eclipse? The good news is that Australia is set to receive a total solar eclipse that will be visible smack-bang in the middle of Sydney. People in that path will be able to experience a total solar eclipse!

In this NASA handout, A total solar eclipse is seen on August 21, 2017 above Madras, Oregon.

More total eclipses will cross just a few states in 2078 and 2079 as well.

Central Library outside Manassas scored 1,500 solar glasses - the most of any Prince William County library - and gave them all away within a day and a half just after the first of the month.

Canadians got to glimpse a partial eclipse on Monday, while much of the United States was treated to the aforementioned total solar eclipse.

Red prominences coming off the sun are seen during a total solar eclipse in Oregon. In Washington, DC, thousands of people lined the National Mall to view a partial eclipse - when four-fifths of the sun was blacked out. And so we chose to livestream it here, so that people could come here and see the totality. The peak of the eclipse will take place at 3:14 p.m.

The 2024 eclipse's totality will track from southwest to northeast, going through Central Mexico and up through Texas, before making for IN and on through Maine.
