Library giving out 500 pairs of eclipse glasses on Monday

Got a spot picked to watch the eclipse? Ferndale has the perfect event to learn something, too Doctors Stress Proper Eye Protection For Viewing Solar Eclipse

The Stem in the Sky eclipse event at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility Visitor Center is from noon to 4:30 p.m. "The sun was totally blocked out and you could see the aurora around the sun", Smith said that moment it went dark "you could see the peace and quiet in god's creation".

I hadn't thought about that sides of things myself, until I came across an article in The Washington Post this week about how the Little League World Series is going to handle the eclipse, which will pass through its Williamsport, Pennsylvania, complex a little after 1 p.m.

Although the advent of solar-safe sunglasses dates back more than three decades, they have never been so widely available to the public as for the 2017 event, which Fienberg said may rank as the most watched total solar eclipse in human history. So, if you walk through your house and you can still view ordinary household lights through your eclipse glasses or handheld viewer, then that means your device is bogus.

According to NASA's total solar eclipse interactive map, Ferndale will see a partial solar eclipse - 87.39 percent of the sun will be obscured by the moon.

"Exercise good judgment on the roads, plan ahead, no stopping on the side of the road and, of course, no driving with those eclipse glasses because it's really tough to see". Looking at the sun directly, even just the sliver of sun visible before the total eclipse, can cause permanent eye damage.

Some McDonald's locations outside of OR - including Missouri and Washington - are also selling eclipse glasses.

Inspect solar filters before use.

The only advice on what NOT to do is as follows: Don't search for eclipse glasses online and buy whatever comes up in the ads or the early search results - at least, not without doing some homework first. Oak Ridge is one of the few cities in the path of totality in Tennessee. Turn away from the sun before removing the solar filter. The special solar filters are quite instrumental when it comes to offering people a safer view of the eclipsed sun.

Get help from an astronomer before using a solar filter with a camera, telescope or other optical device.

If you normally wear eyeglasses, put the eclipse-viewing glasses over them or hold the hand-held solar viewer in front of them.
