Never ever look at the sun — even a partially covered sun — with the naked eye. But, during totality, toss that viewer aside and just look. We’ll be able to see the glow around the sun from the solar corona — this is material that is being blown away from the solar surface. And, if we’re lucky, we’ll see prominences around the edge of the moon.

I find that as a total eclipse occurs, I am just mesmerized by the phase of totality. Being able to see the planets in the sky — all five of the classic naked-eye planets will be in the sky around the sun during the total eclipse phase in 2024. Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and Mars will all be up there, although Mercury will be too faint to see.
