"The US hasn't experienced a total coast-to-coast eclipse event since 1918, and the last time we saw a total solar eclipse in America since 1979, but it was not a total eclipse in Texas".

Eclipse glasses are for sale online so that you can view the eclipse without damaging your eyesight. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses are not safe for looking at the sun.
