I learned that you have to wear these glasses so you do not burn your eyes. "Solar retinopathy" can happen and that means too much ultraviolet light gets into the eye retina. You could go blind or have dark spots in your vision. You also wont be able to see the solar eclipse if you do not have the sun glasses because you need them to filter out the sunlight. This is a very important safety rule and you have to follow it.

I learned that on Aug. 21, 2017, the solar eclipse will darken the skies from Oregon to South Carolina. Many people are traveling to parts of the country that will give the best view. It will last longer depending on where you see it from. The Mid-West is a great place to be today to see the eclipse. This will be a great experience!

This link was interesting to me because it gives information about things like traffic hints and the weather. It tells you what to do if you are driving during the eclipse and not to wear the special glasses when you drive and how crowded the roads might be. There are also ideas of how to throw an eclipse party! Many public areas will be used to view the eclipse too,
