Manitoba Museum Throwing Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

Manitoba Museum Throwing Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

Put solar filters on before you look at the sun, and don't take them off until after you look away. So why is the Sun more unsafe to look at during an eclipse? If you're seeing totality, you can remove the glasses only for the 2 to 3 minutes the sun is completely covered.

As we all know, the Earth revolves around the Sun, and the Moon revolves around the Earth.

Herman Wong, a University of Toronto engineering and photonics Phd. student, tests eclipse glasses with an ellipsometer at the University of Toronto on Thursday, August 10, 2017.

The best-case scenario is if our area only sees a few low or thin clouds, which would allow for the greatest viability of all phases. Totality won't last long, so observe as much as you can during that short amount of time.

Monday will bring a rare, must-see event: The moon will momentarily block the sun from our view. The Maximum Eclipse in the the Tri-State (91 percent) will happen around 2:29 p.m.

Everyone is invited to visit the observatory where they will have solar telescopes and solar glasses available for safely viewing the eclipse (if the sky is clear).

An estimated 7.4 million people are expected to travel to the 70-mile-wide path where the eclipse will be visible in totality. This place will most likely be packed with people during the solar eclipse. Read and follow any instructions printed on or packaged with the filter.

"You definitely need solar film, solar filters, bonafide solar glasses not sunglasses, those won't be enough to protect your eyes", he said. But have you ever wondered how does a solar eclipse look like from space?

Some models started looking at the weather very far in advance, but Gross warned, those models often change drastically over time. You should seek expert advice from a qualified astronomer before using any optical device for this goal.
