(New York, NY) -- Next Monday's solar eclipse won't be a total eclipse in New York, where only about 70 percent of the sun will be covered.
If you want to see the eclipse in 100-percent totality, Triple-A advises against trying to make a last-minute dash up an interstate and then either pulling over or trying to watch over your steering wheel while you're still driving.
Hotel rooms in large cities in the eclipse path could be booked up, but Triple-A says smaller towns near Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains National Park might have rooms available. Some people are planning to camp in the path of totality, and at least one cruise ship is altering its normal course to give passengers a glimpse of the eclipse.
