The countdown is on for August 21, when a total solar eclipse will arc across the continental United States for the first time in decades.
The moon will pass in front of the sun but never stare into the sun, or an eclipse. "They're meant for one objective, and one goal only, and that is to look at the sun during an eclipse". Tucson is out of the path of totality but will enjoy a good partial eclipse.

If you don't have the right filters for your telescope or the certified eclipse glasses, there's still another method for viewing the eclipse safely.

In Casper, Wyoming, the eclipse starts at 10:22 a.m. MDT and totality begins at 11:42 a.m. MDT, lasting for a little under 2 1/2 minutes. Trying to make your own eclipse glasses out of tinted filters is a definite - and potentially unsafe - no-no.
"Be prepared for prolonged travel times and heavy traffic" is what OR officials advise.
Google has teamed up with the Gordon and Betty Moore foundation, SSI, the National Science Foundation, and NASA to distribute 2 million solar-viewing glasses to almost 5,000 libraries throughout the country. Avoid glasses that are more than three years old and those with scratched or wrinkled lenses.
"They (the public) can come and go - the height of the eclipse is at 1:09 p.m.", said Randi Strutton, the library's programming and outreach manager. "It's one of the most remarkable, most spectacular naked-eye phenomenon that you can see".
