Public Solar Eclipse Viewing Party at Science Spectrum

How to know your eclipse glasses are safe

While solar eclipses are not rare events, a total solar eclipse, such as the one that will occur on August 21 this year, is rare, especially when it can be seen from the lower 48 states, as it will on that day.

In few weeks, the moon will pass between the sun and earth, creating a handsome image, known as a total solar eclipse.

How can you tell if your eclipse glasses or handheld solar viewers are safe? Contrary to what some may believe, regular sunglasses will not be sufficient-even welder's glasses will not protect your eyes from retinal burn which may cause permanent eye damage.

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. He says Middle Georgia won't get a full view of the solar ring. Stories about the Sun and Moon will be read, children will be able to construct a model to learn how an eclipse occurs and everyone will learn how to use the glasses to safely look at the eclipse. In fact, if you use a filter during totality, you'll see nothing at all.

Area colleges, libraries and cities in the path of the eclipse are also planning activities. The moon will leave the sun behind, ending the eclipse, at 3:59:09 Hummelstown, 3:59:10 in Hershey, 3:59:11 in Palmyra, and 3:59:30 in Elizabethtown. And don't point your iPhone at the sun or you'll fry the camera mechanism.

Total solar eclipses offer unprecedented opportunities to study Earth under uncommon conditions. Kerrigan says "the last coast-to-coast total eclipse in the United States was in 1918".

A local library is offering a great way to check out the upcoming solar eclipse. Seeing a partial eclipse vs. a total eclipse is like looking at a photo of the Grand Canyon in a book vs standing at the rim yourself and taking it all in.

All events are free and take place at Bethlehem Public Library, 451 Delaware Ave., Delmar. It starts just after 9am and will last for about 2 and a half hours. Do a search online for ISO 12312 solar eclipse glasses or check local stores. This will be the first coast-to-coast eclipse in the 99 years. On the eastern side of the mountains in Madras, Dulsky said your chances of having a clear sunny day in the third week in August are extremely good and probably the best in the country.
