canada flight last month.
6:46 am
the jet came dangerously the faa is changing the way pilots land at sfo after the near disaster involving an air canada flight last month. the jet came dangerously close to four other aircraft waiting on the taxiway that parallels the runway. now the faa will no longer issue visual approaches to air crews coming into sfo at night when an adjacent parallel runway is closed. controllers will issue satellite based approaches. the close call was considered a nonevent because the faa classified a near miss as a time when two aircraft almost collide in the air. one retired pilot credits the media for putting it on the radar. >> so technically, this would not have raised any alarm until you folks, the reporters, got a hold of this story. >> no change from the faa, two controllers have to stay in the sfo tower until the late night arrival rush is over. there was only one on duty the
6:47 am
night of the close call. only three days away from the solar eclipse and a lot of people are gearing up and getting eclipse glasses. because of the demand, ordering them online is nearly impossible or just expensive. on amazon, prices are more than triple what the glasses usually cost. experts say there are some cheaper alternatives. >> take two pieces of paper or cardboard, maybe a pin, put the other piece of paper on the ground and let the sun go through the little pinhole and you can watch the different phases of the eclipse indirectly on that piece of paper on the ground. >> another option is to look up local watch parties. many are giving away glasses to people who attend. our ken bastida is ready for the eclipse. he is wearing his welding goggles. he will be along the path of totality in oregon. he will report starting tomorrow. >> if you are thinking i got to go to the garage get my welding

6:49 am
we have been tracking this accident all morning long. this was an accident that turned into a car fire last night. one lane is open, one lane closed on southbound 680. so the backup stretches up to 80. 40 minutes into benicia. 880 just south of hesperian and you make your way through solar eclipse down into hayward, you'll be tapping those brakes but i think we can handle t traffic is still moving in both directions. good morning. so we all are looking ahead to monday to the solar eclipse. for the bay area, right along the coastline, here's the forecast for the eclipse. so you can expect to see some low clouds right along the coast. they may move out of the way at the tail end of the eclipse as it passes over oregon.
