Solar Eclipse Glasses Safety

I am sure many of you have plans for the first solar eclipse visible in the US in 38 years but have you planned how you are going to view it?

On August 21, 2017, we will experience a total solar eclipse across the United States. It will be visible along a 70-mile-wide path stretching from Oregon to South Carolina. Due to the rareity of this event people from all over are expected to travel to this “path of totality” to watch as the moon entirely covers the face of the Sun.

 

NASA has informed us that not all viewing glasses may be safe. How can you tell?

An eclipse is a rare and striking phenomenon you won't want to miss, but you must be careful and follow safety procedures. You can experience the eclipse safely, but make sure that you protect your eyes at all times with the proper solar filters.

Make sure to take breaks and give your eyes a rest!

Do not use:

Sunglasses: they don't offer your eyes sufficient protection.

A welding glass that permits you to see the landscape

A telescope without a solar filter
