  • NASA announces television coverage for Aug. 21 solar eclipse

There are now two official NASA solar eclipse viewing locations in our region on Monday, August 21. Special eclipse shades will be available.

Staring at the sun without proper filtration, even when it is partially obscured by the moon during an eclipse, can damage or destroy photo-receptor cells of the eye's retina, leaving blind spots in a person's field of vision, experts said. Normal sunglasses don't provide enough protection.

The public is encouraged to come and learn about the Solar Eclipse that will take place on August 21, and how to view the eclipse safely. Watching the celestial event is a rare experience, but it also carries a lot of dangers.

The legitimate glasses, which offer no views outside the eclipse, carry their own hazards, however. Optometrists want to reinforce that the only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters or other ISO-certified filters, such as "eclipse glasses" or handheld solar viewers.
