Stay Hydrated:  If you're planning to be outdoors for a while, remember to stay hydrated. Carry a water bottle with you.

Comfortable Clothing:  Dress comfortably and according to the weather. If it's going to be cold, layer up.

Backup Plan: Have a backup plan in case of bad weather. You can watch the eclipse online on various platforms

Capture the Moment: If you plan to photograph the eclipse, make sure you have the right equipment and know how to use it safely.

Respect Nature : If you're watching the eclipse in a park or natural setting, respect the environment. Don't leave any trash behind.
