Don't look at the Solar Eclipse... without protective glasses!

Don't look at the Solar Eclipse... without protective glasses!

The last time anyone in the United States witnessed a solar eclipse was nearly 40 years ago, on February 26, 1979. Viewing the sun or an eclipse using any other glasses or filters could result in loss of vision or permanent blindness.

Best Buy is also sold out, but they're selling eclipse binoculars and telescopes at the Clackamas store. Just looking at the eclipse unprotected could do serious damage to you. But on August 21, anyone within a roughly 70-mile-wide path from OR to SC will be able to experience a total solar eclipse for about 2 minutes, weather permitting. Approximately 200 million people will be within a day's drive of the path.

Live reports will be issued from towns across the United States.

Next Monday we'll see a partial solar eclipse in Maine. A total solar eclipse takes place when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth in ideal alignment, blocking out the light of the sun in the process.

As VisionWorks' Dr. Richard Gersh explains, the moon will cover the sun by 96 percent in Louisville. According to Hypebeast, using multiple cameras, CNN will stream coverage of the event for those of us who don't lie in the Path of Totality.

In order to properly view the eclipse by looking at it directly, you need eye protection that complies with ISO 12312-2:2015 - the standard for stuff that lets you look directly at the sun.

It's now unclear how many companies are affected by the recall. "It now appears that some companies are printing the ISO logo and certification label on fake eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers made with materials that do not block enough [light]", the organization says. It doesn't matter how dark the filter, if the glasses aren't certified, they are not safe. Everything should return to normal at 4:01 p.m.

Libraries around the country have been handing out eclipse glasses.
