Proper eye protection needed for viewing the eclipse

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

At 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Fort Wayne Astronomical Society will offer more information about solar eclipses and show people how to make a pinhole eclipse viewer during the nonprofit group's general meeting at the main branch of the Allen County Public Library, 900 Library Plaza. Special eclipse shades will be available. Looking at the sun directly, even just the sliver of sun visible before the total eclipse, can cause permanent eye damage.

The first total solar eclipse in almost a century is 10 days away and while it will be visible in Rhode Island, some locals are hitting the road to get an even better look at the rare celestial event. 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. But in the so-called "path of totality" where Levesque is headed, spanning from OR to SC, viewers will be able to see the total eclipse in all its glory.

The Oak Ridge Public Library will give out 500 pairs of eclipse glasses to library patrons on Monday, August 14. Homemade sun filters and regular sunglasses do not provide sufficient eye protection.

NPS said to view the sun during the eclipse, use eclipse glasses or a handheld solar viewer.
