Eye doctors on how to properly view the eclipse

Eye doctors on how to properly view the eclipse

Nebraka's handsome at this time of year anyway. This is the first time in 99 years that a total solar eclipse will be viewable across the continental United States. As I've told others, it's these - not sunglasses.

These solar viewer brands are said to be available at retail chains such as 7-Eleven, Best Buy, Kroger, Love's Travel Stops, Lowe's, Flying Js, Toys "R" Us and Walmart carry the approved brands. I remembered how fun it was to have her in the vehicle with me, just talking about ordinary things.

In addition to being the first total solar eclipse visible from any part of the contiguous United States since 1979, this year's eclipse will be the first with the totality of its passing spanning from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic since 1918. This event was an annular eclipse, meaning that the moon was positioned further away from the earth and did not completely block out the sunlight.

"And the effect will depend heavily on local weather". About 200 million people live within a day's drive of the "path of totality", and millions are expected to flock there for the event. The eclipse will certainly be noticeable, but no place in IN will experience totality this eclipse.

The path of totality is only about 75 miles wide.

Dr. Michael McMullen, an ophthalmologist with the Orangeburg Eye Center, said, "Looking at the sun during an eclipse even for a short amount of time can cause permanent eye damage, so there are some steps people need to take to view it safely".

A solar eclipse only lasts a few minutes and can only be seen by less than half a percent of the earth's population.




The 2017 total solar eclipse is making armchair astronomers of us all, putting unusual and unfamiliar words into our mouths. You want to be in an open area without a ton of tall trees and buildings.

"The next day, as millions gather for the event, you'll ascend in a private jet to a spectacular view of the eclipse in all its glory", Airbnb said on its website. I'm excited that it's here except I'm operating on that day.

"Such warnings are outdated and do not apply to eclipse viewers compliant with the ISO 12312-2 worldwide safety standard, which was adopted in 2015".

"This eclipse is a huge deal because it has been so long since we've had an opportunity to observe a solar eclipse", says "Cosmic Mike" Smith, senior astronomy educator at North Museum of Nature and Science. Camping parks are at full capacity for the eclipse and there will be a viewing party on Dreher Island. The middle of the eclipse, which is when the most sun will be covered, will take place at 10:27 a.m., and the eclipse will end at 11:52 a.m.

Or, thanks to unscrupulous vendors who care about neither worldwide copyright law nor your eyesight, what you think are eclipse-safe glasses may not actually be. What makes the August 21 eclipse so special is that it will cut diagonally across the entire United States. Be sure to look down in the shade of a tree during the eclipse.

GreatAmericanEclipse.com has all the information needed for any eclipse travelers, as it offers US highway routes to cities in the totality zone and estimated driving times. For this occasion humanity will continue to take part in a almost 5,000 year old tradition, making a big deal out of the solar eclipse!
