"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. In this case, unscrupulous companies are selling unsafe eyewear. "You don't want to sit and just stare at the sun".
As for the nation's power grid, utilities that rely on solar power will need to use fossil power plants, nuclear stations and dams to compensate for the loss of an estimated 9 gigawatts of solar energy as the shadow moves across the nation at 1,000 miles per hour. What this means for sky watchers in southern Nevada, where there will be only a partial eclipse, is that there will not be any period of time at all during which the event will be safe to view without solar filters; and to view a total eclipse in the western USA, they will have to travel north. That darkness will last for about 2 minutes and 40 seconds. This gives public safety agencies a better understanding of where visitors will go so they can mitigate potential traffic chokepoints.
