We are just 10 days away from the first total solar eclipse in nearly 100 years and while watching the celestial event is a rare experience, it also carries a lot of dangers.

The path of the total solar eclipse will cut throughout the United States and will be viewed by millions.

The American Astronomical Society has a list of reputable eclipse glasses and hand-held viewers on its website - stamped with this approval code - 12312-2.

"Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse", said Sachin Bahmba, Chairman and Managing Director at Space Group, who is leading the team from India for the expedition.
