Where to Buy Eclipse Glasses: Trustworthy Sources Amid Fakes

Where to Buy Eclipse Glasses: Trustworthy Sources Amid Fakes

To better understand what a total solar eclipse is and what we can expect, I made a decision to go straight to the source of space science.

The start of the partial eclipse, when the moon is first appearing to touch the sun, will occur around 1:21 in the afternoon. But she said she's all right with the eclipse mania. Shannon Schmoll, director of the Abrams Planetarium at Michigan State University, explains why and how it happens, and what we can learn from an eclipse.

The Oak Ridge Public Library will give out 500 pairs of eclipse glasses to library patrons on Monday, August 14. Again, this is for those in the total eclipse area and will not be visible from Louisville. "The people who see the total eclipse are in the center of the moon's shadow when it hits Earth". In any given place, a total eclipse happens only once every hundred years or so.

Bob Baer, a Southern Illinois University physics professor, will be taking telescopic images of the eclipse in Carbondale as part of a NASA initiative to collect photos from almost 70 sites in the path of totality.

Aspiring eclipse watchers in northern IL only will be able to see about 87 percent of the sun obscured.

The next total eclipse visible in the United States will occur on April 8, 2024. However, in Madison - where a maximum of 85 percent of the sun will be blocked by the moon at about 1:15 p.m. - that won't be an option. "It's very exciting for them and they want to take the eye protection off", Dr. Van Gelder said.

Bates still has vision in his left eye. A list of reputable vendors, compiled by the American Astronomical Society (AAS), is available at https://eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters.

Nature often creates such pinhole viewers for us, in the form of trees. The little spaces between your fingers will project a grid of small images on the ground, showing the sun as a crescent during the partial phases of the eclipse. And luckily, Best Buy has yet to run out of solar eclipse glasses that are advised to properly see the eclipse safely. Do I really need those glasses?

If customers choose the Amazon route, it is important make sure the glasses will ship in time.

"It's a big event".

If you normally wear eyeglasses, put the eclipse-viewing glasses over them or hold the hand-held solar viewer in front of them. First, let's review some basics about this much-anticipated event.

"Come out wherever you are and enjoy this", Newman said. "The last total eclipse was 1979 (in Hawaii), so I don't know if historical data can be modeled". "For Glasgow, you will not see a total eclipse". Stars also can appear.

You won't see something like this again until 2316 - so you better get a good view.

Police also anticipate heavy traffic next weekend and ask drivers to pull off the road to view the celestial event.

"I would encourage folks to go out and try to pay attention to how dim it gets. I think people will be interested to see how people react to such a long eclipse".
