Fake eclipse glasses flood the market, experts warn of 'devastating' dangers

If you're looking for a prime place to view the total solar eclipse on August 21, the Kansas City Library downtown might be a good option.

Most of the Hotels and motels in the path of the umbra have been booked for months, if not years. Heading into the home stretch, it's important to reiterate SAFETY, describe what we will be doing at the Rockwall County Library, and explain why it's important to view this eclipse around knowledgeable, well-equipped people.

Around 88 percent of the sun will be covered by the moon near the Canadian border.

Now, although everyone in the United States will technically be in position to see the eclipse, you need to have special glasses in order to do so. This will help you gauge how quickly your thermometer can respond to the temperature change.

"You will notice something", assured Dulsky. It's going to look pretty neat through your viewing devices. The filters are also created to let through enough light to view the event comfortably. But for those not in the path of totality, the sun will only be partially blocked.

Peering through X-rays, smoked glass or regular sunglasses also do not provide the protection that's needed, he warns.

Abu Dujana, J&K's most feared Lashkar commander, killed
Several locals, however, indulged in stone-pelting, ultimately providing him cover while the encounter ensued. Internet services have been snapped in south Kashmir as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order.

"We used to say that you should look for evidence that they comply with the ISO 12312-2 worldwide safety standard for filters for direct viewing of the Sun", the organization posted on its website. And don't point your iPhone at the sun or you'll fry the camera mechanism. You don't know when you're doing it damage. The easiest way to view the eclipse safely is with eclipse glasses.

Consider where you'd like to watch the eclipse, and choose your viewing spot well in advance, making sure to contact private landowners for permission to occupy their property.

The next total solar eclipse visible from North America will be April 8, 2024. For more information on Cornhusker city celebrations to attend prior to the eclipse, visit neclipse17.com.

The 2017 solar eclipse will be an event to remember, but there are a few things to consider before striking out to catch a glimpse of this historic moment.

Here are several more eclipse presentations that are free and open to the public.
