Yes, that was the best (least) traffic I've ever seen in LA.

If you have your 007 glasses, can you look at the eclipse with binoculars?

Terry says it's not a good idea because it could hurt the binoculars. Same thing with camera lenses. The elements in the eyepiece could become decemented.

Actually, I looked at the NASA site this am about the eclipse. They say not to look through telescopes, binoculars, or even telephoto lenses, even with the eclipse glasses. There are filters you can use, but not without.

But thanks for the reply.

You need a solar filter in *front* of any device (camera, telescope, binoculars, eyes, etc) that will look at the Sun during a partial eclipse. You don't need any filters during totality. If fact, use only your eyes during totality for the best view!
