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.

However, it's essential that anyone planning to watch the eclipse gets proper eye protection. 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.

Tweet Embed: Where are peeps buying eclipse glasses locally? If they meet the standard, you shouldn't be able to see anything through a solar filter except the sun itself. Read and follow any instructions printed on or packaged with the filter. In anticipation of the event, companies have been trying to cash in by selling said glasses, even if they are fake and would do nothing to protect a viewers eyes.

However، the total solar eclipse will also have imperceptible effects، such as the sudden loss of extreme ultraviolet radiation from the Sun، which generates the ionised layer of Earth's atmosphere، called the ionosphere. The optical device concentrates the sun's light, which can damage the solar viewer and then your eyes. Help children to use handheld solar viewers and eclipse glasses correctly. Transportation officials in Georgia warned people to make sure they have enough gasoline, especially if they're traveling to the northern part of the state, which will have a good view of the eclipse, so that no one becomes an "eclipse refugee".
