Solar Eclipse Viewing Safety

Fun as it may be, however, there are some precautions to take, as staring directly at the eclipse is damaging to the eyes. For safety-sake, free viewing glasses will be available at local businesses and area sponsors, and grabbing a few pairs is highly recommended.

• Cover your eyes with eclipse glasses or a solar filtering viewer before looking at the sun and keep your eyewear in place until you have turned away from the sun.

• Do not look at the ether the un-eclipsed or partially eclipsed sun without a filtered optical device or through an unfiltered camera, telescope, or binoculars.

• Only at the point of full totality when the moon has completely covered the sun is it safe to look at the sun without protective eyewear.
