You should only look at the sun without these glasses or a filter once the moon is covering the sun completely.

The total solar eclipse on August 21 is a rare occurrence. If this event results in a total obscuration of the sun it is called a total eclipse. Kerrigan tells us that the sun's brightness will be similar to right after sunrise or sunset. "Like you'll see when the eclipse shines through the leaves of a tree a lot of times, it'll make little images of the eclipse on the ground". The closest areas with a total eclipse will be Nashville and Cape Girardeau. The peak of the eclipse in Memphis, or when we will see the most coverage of the sun, is at 1:22 p.m.

Eakins said that while a solar eclipse for a specific location may be rare, one or two typically occur every year somewhere in the world. Another reason most people with smartphones will be using telephoto lens systems to zoom in on the eclipse. The year 1979 was the last time anyone in the continental USA was able to witness a total solar eclipse. He says looking at the sun during an eclipse is still damaging to your eyes, and you will need more than a pair of sunglasses to view the eclipse safely.
