Look out for fake eclipse glasses

11 Agosto 2017, 03:47 | Verda Sainz

While NASA is no longer taking applications for official events, general events can still be added to the growing list of viewing parties, festivals, etc. Most any of the solar shades you find should work as long as they are compliant with 12312-2 worldwide safety standards.

During the brief moments when the moon completely blocks the Sun's face and day will turn to night.

While the eclipse won't be complete in Colorado, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to travel to Wyoming to watch the once-in-a-lifetime event that's been dubbed the Great American Eclipse. Ahead of the eclipse, they're trying to get the word out about proper protective glasses - and warning consumers to beware of fakes.

Neither Mercury nor Venus have moons.

And since viewing a solar eclipse without the proper equipment can be unsafe, the app also provides a guide to viewing one safely.


As the moon moves in front of the sun that day, a "path of totality" will develop in portions of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and SC.

Almost everywhere else in the USA, including Syracuse, will experience a partial eclipse.

On August 21, you may want to head outside during your lunch break to catch the 2017 total solar eclipse.

The next total solar eclipse will be in 2024, so most of us will have another chance to see one! Calculations show that it will take about 1000 years for every geographic location in the Lower-48 to be able to view a total solar eclipse.

Once you get your hands on safe viewing glasses, it's time to plan your eclipse party, of course.


DON'T look into the sun with your naked eye.

On Saturday, the Buena Vista Museum of Natural History & Science will host "Eclipse Across America", offering some background on the solar eclipse is and the best way to see it.

Planning on using eclipse glasses or filters?

According to TimeAndDate.com, the eclipse will be viewable in Oakland County Monday, Aug. 21, between 1:02 p.m. and 3:46 p.m., with the maximum eclipse visibility 2:26 p.m.
