Library giving out 500 pairs of eclipse glasses on Monday

Got a spot picked to watch the eclipse? Ferndale has the perfect event to learn something, too

The Oak Ridge Public Library will give out 500 pairs of eclipse glasses to library patrons on Monday, August 14.

This time, the path of total eclipse will be about 70 miles wide and begins in OR on the west coast and travels to SC on the east coast, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) reports on its eclipse website, eclipse2017.nasa.gov.

It will also be the first total solar eclipse visible from any of the Lower 48 states since 1979. Special eclipse shades will be available. Within the path of totality, you can safely witness the two or more minutes when the moon completely covers the sun with the naked eye.

The lenses of some obvious fakes allow the penetration of light from such relatively faint sources as fluorescent lamps, while the only thing one should see through authentic solar-safe filters when looking at objects fainter than the sun is pitch blackness. The American Astronomical Society, a NASA partner, has verified that these manufacturers are making eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers that meet the ISO 12312-2 global standard for such products.

Solar eclipse glasses are flying off the shelves.

Inspect solar filters before use. Turn away from the sun before removing the solar filter. If you stare at the sun without protection, you may experience damage to your retina (the tissue at the back of your eye) called "solar retinopathy".
