Why You Shouldn't Fall For Phony Eclipse Glasses

But because total solar eclipses are so infrequent, scientists have little beyond anecdotal evidence of animal behavior, Rebecca Johnson, citizen science research coordinator at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, told the paper.

Let's make sure one thing is clear: Here in Sacramento, you should not look at the sun without eclipse glasses at any point during the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21.

Any filter less opaque than that may cause severe eye damage that would not become evident until hours later, Chou warned.

As the expected solar eclipse approaches this month, authorities have warned people of buying bogus sunglasses in the market.

Not wearing them could result in lasting damage called solar maculopathy, or a sunburn to the retina. You'll have to be in east Asia or Australia to see that one! "Totality is going to last over five minutes". However, it's not really a necessity, as even on normal days, animals don't particularly have a habit of looking at the sun, so there's no specific worry as to whether they will on the specific day of the eclipse.

Rane, who will be on a boat somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Charleston, North Carolina, in the path of totality on the morning of August 21, said viewers in Inglewood and the South Bay can expect to see the moon covering about two-thirds of the sun at the peak of the eclipse.

Because of the sudden darkness and drop in temperature, it's very possible to witness sudden changes in animals' behavior. NEVER look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection.

"Compared to visible light, the Sun's extreme ultraviolet output is highly variable", said Phil Erickson, principal investigator of a third study and space scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Haystack Observatory in Westford, Massachusetts. However, as totality is ending, there's a flash of sunlight when the moon moves off the sun.

How does a total solar eclipse happen?

It'll be the first solar eclipse some see in their lifetime.


The moon will cover 65 percent to 70 percent of the sun's surface, meaning it will fall under the penumbra shadow. But the moon will block at least a portion of the sun nationwide, with the amount of obscurity varying by location.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth's shadow is cast onto the moon. However, the sun happens to be 400 times farther away from Earth than the moon, making the sun and moon appear to be almost the same size from our perspective. "Following this, we will have a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 visible from Texas to ME".
