The Great American Eclipse, the first solar eclipse visible in all of America since 1979, is coming up fast.

"We've SOLD OUT of Eclipse Glasses!"

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

Several area libraries, including the Sequoya and Alicia Ashman branch libraries in Madison, will also give free glasses to attendees of library events leading up to the eclipse.

Experiencing a solar eclipse requires care: Looking at the sun during the eclipse - or at any other time - without the proper protective gear can cause eye damage, NASA said. "It doesn't take very long before you're exposing your eyes to serious risk".

The partial eclipse is scheduled to start in Brookings at 11:37 a.m.

Of the 600 tourists stranded in the Chitwan Valley, almost 200 were from India and about the same number from other countries. The DHM has also forecast heavy rains in western Nepal, where floods have already swept away three concrete bridges.


"As a retailer they are recalling the glasses", said Fischer.

"The market is being flooded with counterfeits", he said. Those glasses were among those that were deemed safe.

In addition to its preparation event, the Fort Wayne Astronomical Society also will help people experience the solar eclipse by having members out from noon to 3 p.m. August 21 in the plaza outside the main library, a group news release said.

"Make sure to help children to use solar filters and eclipse glasses properly", Dr. Ronold Tesch said. The full list can be found at eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters. Sunglasses, even dark ones, aren't safe for looking at an eclipse.

On Aug. 21, the greater part of North America will experience a solar eclipse, when the moon blocks the sun from Earth's view.

"There's no reason to panic if you don't have eclipse viewers themselves", he said. This certification is used to indicate they are safe for viewing the sun.
