Chances of finding special eclipse glasses are dim

Chances of finding special eclipse glasses are dim

Since the village will only experience a partial eclipse, there is no time at which it's advised to look directly at the sun without eye protection.

The Sedona Lookers are hosting a star party at Sedona library during the eclipse in the front parking lot.

Most of the time, we instinctively don't let ourselves look at the sun - the brightness causes us to blink or look away, which is why solar retinopathy cases are mostly associated with eclipse events (other cases have occurred when people have engaged in sun-gazing rituals or when people tripping on LSD have been captivated by the sun's brilliance). There will be binoculars with safe filters to view it up close and in 3D.

If viewing the Eclipse through a camera or telescope, be sure your lens has a solar filter.

As most news outlets have been reporting feverishly in the last few weeks, parts of the US will experience a total solar eclipse of the sun on Monday, Aug. 21.

"Eclipses are quite common".

Warning as chemical 'haze' descends on English beach goers
They searched from the west side of the Severn Sisters through to Beachy Head where it was joined by Eastbourne lifeboat. An unknown haze coming in from the sea has led to the evacuation of a beach on the southern coast of England.

They completed a series of highly detailed solar simulations timed to the moment of the eclipse using University of Texas at Austins Stampede2 supercomputer, Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, and NASAs Pleiades supercomputer. Solar eclipse glasses are offered with the purchase of your ticket. While 100 percent won't be possible to witness within the state, astronomers say the event is nevertheless worthy of attention.

Residents looking for a good place to observe the eclipse in our area are invited to Trailside Nature and Science Center in Mountainside from 12:00 p.m.to 3:00 p.m. Trailside is located at 452 New Providence Road in Mountainside.

During the eclipse, the moon will pass between the Earth and the sun, creating a dark sky in the middle of the day in locations from coast to coast in the U.S. Yellow Springs will experience a partial eclipse, with the moon beginning to move into place around 1 p.m., and 88 percent of the sun obscured by the moon at the eclipse's peak, which will be around 2:28 p.m. According to Jeffrey Hall, Director of Lowell Observatory, this year's eclipse stands out because anyone in the country can view it, no special scientific background or equipment required.

You can find more information on the event at the Morehead Planetarium here. What happens is there's an irreversible damage to the retina, so you have a blind spot. Do not look at the sun through the binoculars. Think of how you can burn things by concentrating the light from the Sun with a magnifying glass. If you want to park your RV, it's going to cost you $1,000.

Enjoy the eclipse, as the next one will take a few decades, and do so safely.
