The Great American Eclipse will take place on Monday August 21, but there will be people all over the world trying to take the flawless picture of the solar event. The eclipse will be visible here from about noon to 3 p.m. Oregon's Department of Transportation said the eclipse will cause "the biggest traffic event in OR history" as visitors descend on the state in cars and camper vans.

The total solar eclipse is expected to bring as many as 1 million visitors to OR and has been a boon to businesses cashing in on the influx of tourists.

Science Central's gift shop is selling solar eclipse viewing cards for $1.99 each to the public and for $1 each for Science Central members.

Astronomical society members will set up telescopes with protective solar filters and will have projectors available so people can see the eclipse up close, the news release said.

"We're writing to provide you with important safety information about the eclipse products you purchased on Amazon (order for Solar Glasses for the Great American Total Eclipse 2017 (5 Pack) - CE & ISO Certified - Includes Commemorative Poster & Kids Coloring Pages w/ Crayons)".

Inspect solar filters before use.

A Fort Hood official said the post's solar panel field, which powers a portion of the post, will not be affected by the eclipse. If you would like to see 100% totality , you will have to travel roughly 280 miles from Roanoke or a little under 4.5 hours.

Several libraries are giving away the glasses for free. Help children to use handheld solar viewers and eclipse glasses correctly.

Retailers including REI, Walmart, and Best Buy have sold of their eclipse glasses online.

In areas where it'll be a total solar eclipse, from the Pacific Northwest through Missouri and down to SC, it'll still get really dark - pitch black like night - even if overcast.

Staring at the sun can damage an eye's retina, causing temporary or even permanent damage. The intense solar rays coming through these devices will damage the solar filter and your eyes.

As eclipse glasses sell out at retailers across the U.S., customers are panicking as they realize that their glasses may not arrive in time for the once-in-a-lifetime event.
