Solar Eclipse Information

Follow these instructions from NASA while viewing the solar eclipse:

“The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight. Do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewer — the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye(s), causing serious injury.”

For more instruction on viewing the eclipse, visit NASA’s “Eclipse 101” page at https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety.
