DPL to host solar eclipse events, viewing party

If you were to simply sit in one place and wait for a total solar eclipse to happen, you would have to wait, on average, about 375 years.

A total solar eclipse means that Earth, the sun, and the moon, which all orbit in space in predictable paths, will align. In Polson, the eclipse will begin at 10:16 am and end at 12:52 p.m. with the maximum eclipse occurring at 11:31 am. There's even a higher risk of damage during a solar eclipse so if you want to look directly at it, you must use certified solar eclipse glasses. Looking at the eclipse directly is only safe for the short time that the sun is completely blocked.

Southwestern Community College physics instructor Matt Cass will give an eclipse talk at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 9, at the Macon County Public Library in Franklin.

Three telescopes equipped with solar filters will be set up, and a limited quantity of solar viewers will be available. Do a search online for ISO 12312 solar eclipse glasses or check local stores. Here are just some stores that sell solar eclipse glasses in the News 5 area. "Safe solar filters produce a view of the sun that is comfortably bright (like the full moon), in focus, and surrounded by black sky".




"The partial eclipse will be pretty much for everybody". Additionally, as viewers outside the path of totality will only experience a partial eclipse, they must wear viewing glasses throughout the entire event to see the action. The company started planning for this eclipse about two years ago and hired around 60 additional workers.

"This is where you want to be - somewhere along this line", said Dulsky.

"We've seen examples of what appear to be ordinary sunglasses being sold as solar viewers, and that's awful", says Rick Fienberg, an astronomer and press officer with the American Astronomical Society. "We will also have goggles and glasses specifically made to look at the sun".

"In Charleston, cruise boats and yachts are offering eclipse-viewing trips in Charleston Harbor for the final display of totality on the continent before the 2017 eclipse heads out to sea".
