Acting like a giant pair of sunglasses for cars, the magnetically attached shade is made from an ISO approved material that will be able to filter infrared and UV light to allow sky gazers to see everything from Baily's Beads to totality without damaging eyes during the eclipse. It attaches to the roof with a magnetic frame, and allows all five passengers to safely view the eclipse.

"The development of the XC60 Panoramic Moonroof Eclipse Viewer gives those in the eclipse's path a unique way to experience this historic event in both comfort and safety", said Bob Jacobs, Vice President of Marketing, Product and Brand Communications, Volvo Car USA. The eclipse viewer will be sold through a few Volvo dealerships in Oregon, Idaho, Nebraska, Missouri, and SC, and is ISO-certified.

"For those not in the path of totality, we will live-stream the eclipse in virtual reality and 4K high-resolution, 360 degree video".
