Public Libraries Giving Away Solar Eclipse Glasses

Public Libraries Giving Away Solar Eclipse Glasses

The total solar eclipse is expected to bring as many as 1 million visitors to OR and has been a boon to businesses cashing in on the influx of tourists.

At least some of the eclipse glasses sold on the e-commerce site are scheduled to arrive after August 21, the day of the solar eclipse. Looking directly at the eclipse at any moment except the brief period when the moon has fully eclipsed the sun without certified glasses could damage your eyes.

The path goes just south of the IN border, which means Fort Wayne will experience a partial solar eclipse with about 85 percent of the sun blocked, Science Central Executive Director Martin S. Fisher said IN a news release.

Safe solar filters produce a view of the sun that is comfortably bright - like the full Moon - in focus, and surrounded by dark sky.

The S&P 500 fell 1% Thursday but is still up around 9% so far this year. "What's happened in North Korea is enough to do that". The Dow Jones was down 0.3% in opening trade, declining to 22,016.8 and the wider S&P 500 index dropped 0.48% to 2,463.18.

Check the American Astronomical Society (AAS) Reputable Vendors of Solar Filters & Viewers link, https://eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters, for a list of manufacturers and authorized dealers of eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers that are verified to comply with ISO 12312-2, global safety standard for these products. If you can see lights of more than ordinary brightness through your eclipse glasses or handheld viewer, and you're not sure if the product came from a reputable vendor, don't use it.

The US has solar-eclipse fever.

Wal-Mart and a few other stores may be selling eclipse glasses in areas close to totality but they may have sold out already, and I haven't seen any locally, so that may not stretch as far north as Pennsylvania. Turn away from the sun before removing the solar filter. Even very dark sunglasses can not protect your eyes while looking directly at the sun. Viewers who purchase the glasses not knowing they are fake could be in for serious trouble. The intense solar rays coming through these devices will damage the solar filter and your eyes.
