LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -The countdown is on. Just one week from Monday, it's the first total solar eclipse to occur in the U.S. in nearly 40 years. Although Oklahoma will only see a partial eclipse, if you plan on watching it, you need to be prepared.
The Library is giving away solar viewing glasses to the first 50 people who come to their eclipse watch party right here in front of the library on Monday. A Lawton Optometrist says these glasses are the only way you should look at the eclipse.
The eclipse viewing party will be between 11a.m. until about 2:30 p.m. next Monday. If you can't make it, don't worry we will be streaming it live on our website.
