The American Astronomical Society has a list of reputable vendors of solar filters and viewers.

Kathy McNeilly, second from right, director of the Oak Ridge Public Library, and library employees presented a pair of solar eclipse glasses to City Manager Mark Watson, center, on Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017. Don't take shortcuts on eclipse glasses, and by all means, do not look through a telescope or camera at the sun!

Without glasses, the sun's rays could cause permanent damage to your eyes.

There are several ways to do so, including using one's hands to make a screen to help focus on a shadow of the eclipse on the ground, using a device called a Sunspotter, and wearing special glasses to actually track the eclipse in the sky.

As you undoubtedly learned back in preschool, you should never, ever look directly at the sun.

If you've already ordered glasses online, it might be a good idea to check when they're supposed to be delivered. Make sure they are certified with ISO 12312-2 standards.

Terms were not immediately available, but the extension was sure to make Freeman one of the NFL's highest-paid running backs. People have their opinions, "I think he's the best, I think he's the best back" or I think I'm the best running back.


While the eclipse will only reach 85 percent of southern Wisconsin, the risk of vision loss still exists if protective eyewear is not used. Glasses can also be purchased from Parkland Planetarium for $1. To view the eclipse, you'll need something at a 12, 13 or 14.

Eclipses happen as the moon moves between the Earth and sun, casting a shadow across whichever part of the world that spins by.

"We had three patients who stared at the sun and they lost partial vision", Dr. Cannon said that was from the last eclipse.

If you prefer to do your shopping at brick-and-mortar retailers, says MLive, you can buy approved eclipse glasses at 7-Eleven, Best Buy, Kroger, Love's Travel Stops, Lowe's, Flying Js, Toys "R" Us and Walmart, particularly in places in the path of totality.

The Great American Eclipse is coming up, and reports are coming in of people being scammed by fake eclipse glasses.
