Reese Witherspoon, Al Roker And Bunnie XO were just some of the celebrities who witnessed the total solar eclipse.

The celestial event, which occurred on Monday, April 8, was the first total solar eclipse visible in North America since August 2017. NASA“99% of people living in the United States will be able to see the partial or total solar eclipse from where they live,” including parts of Alaska and Hawaii.

While millions of americans waited patiently for the event, the ladies of The view Monday’s episode began with a discussion about the solar eclipse craze, starting with a warning about looking at the sun without the right glasses.

“You won’t be blinded by the lights unless you do something stupid like that,” says cohost Whoopi Goldberg began before a 2017 photo of the former president Donald Trump staring at the eclipse without glasses flashed across the screen. “Today’s solar eclipse is apparently causing a nationwide frenzy with viewing parties and early school closures. Some people [are] even warning that it is a sign from God.”

Goldberg, 68, continued: “Listen. Let’s be very clear. Unless you know the glasses you have are eclipse glasses, don’t put them on to look at the sun… It will blind you. Do not do it!”
