Planning For The Total Solar Eclipse


This Monday will mark the first time in nearly 40 years that a full solar eclipse has been visible in the mainland United States. You'll need them to safely view the partial phase of the eclipse directly.

You've probably heard about the eclipse happening on Monday.

For those who are not students, faculty or staff at K-State and weren't able to buy solar viewing glasses, there are ways to make a portable camera obscura to view the eclipse. "Looking directly at the sun, even for only a few seconds, can permanently damage the eye's retina, even causing blindness", said Dr. Peter A. Netland, chair of the UVA Department of Ophthalmology. The solar eclipse already has people excited as enthusiastic explorers are prepping to watch the total solar eclipse live on Monday (August 21). In an arc from OR to SC, 10 states will be in the path of totality, experiencing total darkness.

It said goggles, homemade filters and sunglasses don't have the strength to stand against the sun.

Join the crowd. Protective eye wear is proving to be a hot commodity.

A total solar eclipse is seen from Palembang city on March 9, 2016 in Palembang, South Sumatra province, Indonesia. As the moon moves in front of the sun, be prepared for darkness.

Experts caution that, in addition to adults, children should be supervised children to make sure they are wearing proper eclipse viewing glasses properly.

If you're traveling to see the eclipse, book some extra time.

The forecast for Monday at 1 p.m. CDT for shows the least cloudy skies could be in the area of the state that could get the most out of the eclipse - north Alabama. Turn your back to the sun and hold the colander beside your head, aiming at the card.

To protect your eyes make sure you have the right glasses that are certified and meet worldwide safety standards. Also, please visit NASA's Official Eclipse viewing location map for more information about the viewing at the Sports and Fitness Center and other events taking place around the country. Outside of the path of totality, always use solar filters.

If you are going to view the eclipse (and I suggest you do so) you NEVER want to look directly at the sun because you can damage your eyes permanently.
