Proper eye protection needed for viewing the eclipse

14 Août 2017

The total solar eclipse crossing America on August 21st, 2017 will be the first eclipse to march from sea to shining sea in almost 100 years.

While no data exists for how many made-for-eclipse eyeglasses are in circulation overall, shady distributors of purportedly solar-safe shades abound on the Internet, Fienberg said. Among the options: viewing parties at the St. Louis Children's Museum and Gateway Arch and a free event at Jefferson Barracks Park. However, at totality, when the Moon completely blocks the Sun, make sure to remove the filter so you can see the Sun's outer atmosphere - the corona.

The Aug. 21's eclipse mania is just around the corner and a numerous warnings have been unleashed. It results from the improper viewing of the sun at that moment when an eclipse occurs.

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. You will need special eclipse or solar viewers to look at the sun safely. Homemade sun filters and regular sunglasses do not provide sufficient eye protection. Just keep in mind to wear your eclipse safety glasses for all stages of the eclipse before and after totality!

You surely know, after heaps of warnings, not to watch the August 21 solar eclipse without heavily filtered glasses.

Astronomical society members will set up telescopes with protective solar filters and will have projectors available so people can see the eclipse up close, the news release said. Oak Ridge is one of the few cities in the path of totality in Tennessee.

NPS said to view the sun during the eclipse, use eclipse glasses or a handheld solar viewer. The AOA encourages ordering solar eclipse glasses in advance and recommends referring to the American Astronomical Society's site for a list of manufacturers.

The legitimate glasses, which offer no views outside the eclipse, carry their own hazards, however. Using a tripod can help you stabilize the camera and avoid taking blurry images during the low lighting.
