It's once in a lifetime event for many Americans and has us scrambling for the one thing we need for safe viewing - solar eclipse glasses! Yes. Most of the forecast for Western Washington for next Monday morning calls for brief morning clouds that will break up by the time the eclipse begins. More than 2 million eclipse glasses were sent to libraries for distribution and for eclipse viewing events.

However, you don't want to try to take photos or videos of the eclipse without protection for the lens.

Here in Stanwood and Camano Island, residents will see a partial eclipse, if the clouds stay away. Rangers will also have a limited number of eclipse glasses for safe viewing.

If you do want to look directly at the eclipse, you will need special filtered spectacles meeting the ISO 12312-2 worldwide safety standard. We get a solar eclipse when the moon is positioned between the earth and the sun, preventing the sun's light from reaching the earth in some areas. "If you can see anything, they are not safe for looking at the sun without risking serious eye damage". The total eclipse will end near Charleston at 2:48 p.m. By 1 p.m. the highest concentration of people will view the eclipse across the state of Missouri. This indicates that they meet global safety standards for filters to view the sun directly.

Looking directly at the sun can damage your eyes and possibly even blind you.

If purchasing some glasses, make sure that they'll do the job.

For those who would like to view the eclipse with other astronomy lovers, the Fleet Science Center will host two events - one at no charge - on the morning of August 21.

The American Astronomical Society (AAS) has a page on its website that lists vendors selling reputable solar eclipse glasses (Reputable Vendors of Solar Filters & Viewers). "All such sources should appear quite dim through a solar viewer". Then, during the 3 o'clock hour, it'll get brighter as the sun comes back out from behind the moon, and we return to normal by 4 pm.
