Don't put an eye out: Here's what you'll need to watch the Aug. 21 eclipse safely

Although our viewing area isn't in the path of totality, Arkansas and Oklahoma will still see a near eclipse.

Don't look at the sun during the eclipse or at any other time through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars or other optical device, even if wearing eclipse glasses or a solar viewer.

Two local science organizations are offering help to people wondering how to observe the solar eclipse, which will impact all of the mainland United States on August 21. Saturday morning, Fischer got word from Amazon that the glasses the union ordered may not meet the safety requirements.

When purchasing eclipse glasses be certain ISO 12312-2 (or EN1836) is printed somewhere on them.

At 2:05 a.m. Fellini received an email from Amazon, recalling the glasses. The glasses are available at the clinic front desk between regular office hours, 8 a.m.to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Another Portland resident, Will Clark, bought eclipse glasses billed as "CE and ISO tested, safe solar viewing".

Eclipse viewing glasses also will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis on the library plaza, the news release said.

An Amazon spokesperson said Amazon is responding "out of an abundance of caution".

Amazon said customers who did not receive an email purchased glasses that were safe to use.

Some vendors and online retailers have started to run out of the glasses, said American Astronomical Society spokesman and self-proclaimed "eclipse chaser" Rick Fienberg.

We've reached out to Amazon and MASCOTKING for comment concerning the refunds, and will update if we hear back.
