Solar Eclipse Viewing Safety

Library to host solar eclipse programs

As you travel closer to where a total eclipse is, expect to be bombarded with traffic caused by other eclipse chasers as well. NebraskaOn eclipse day, put on your special glasses and view the big show from the Lincoln Saltdogs baseball stadium, which is hosting an eclipse-themed game.

But what if you are stuck in work that whole time, or something else is keeping you inside? Just be sure you have Bonnie Tyler queued up and ready to go.

1 p.m. August 18 - The library is showing a matinee of a Disney family classic with a plot that revolves around an eclipse. The path of totality will create a 70-mile wide path from OR to SC, the rest of the country will see various amounts of coverage. The solar eclipse starts at 10:16 a.m. MDT and totality begins just before 11:35 a.m. MDT, lasting for a little over two minutes.

Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse - known as its totality - when the moon is blocking the sun's face. Others include Oregon, Idaho, Nebraska, Illinois, Kentucky, Georgia, among others. May the shadow of the moon fall on a world in peace.

Danilo Gallinari Injures Hand Punching Opponent In The Face
It appeared that Gallinari took a shot to the face from Kok during the free-throw attempt, which set off the Clippers forward. The 6-foot-10 forward came to L.A. after inking a sign-and-trade deal worth $63 million over three years.

Solar eclipses occur when the moon blocks any part of the sun. While it will be impressive, it won't be quite as life-changing as experiencing the event along the path of totality which sits to our north. The inclined orbit of the moon relative to earth's orbit around the sun prevents every new moon from eclipsing the sun.

"Be prepared for prolonged travel times and heavy traffic" is what OR officials advise. However, experts warn the market is flooded with counterfeit filtered glasses and viewers labeled with that compliance standard. Sunglasses (Rx or not; polarized or not) and smoked glass do not contain these layers and as such are NEVER safe for direct viewing of the sun. The glasses will be available to attendees at the event on a first-come, first-served basis, Library Director Jackie Icenhower said, and won't be handed out in advance.

NASA states that the American Astronomical Society has verified five manufacturers of eclipse glasses and solar viewers that meet the ISO 12312-2 worldwide standard for such products: American Paper Optics, Baader Planetarium (AstroSolar Silver/Gold film only), Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical, and TSE 17. "It's one of the most remarkable, most spectacular naked-eye phenomenon that you can see".
