Woman asks museum to reschedule solar eclipse so her son can watch

Those interested in viewing the solar eclipse can attend a public viewing event on Quincy Hill from 12:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Millions of Americans are getting ready to view the next eclipse on August 21, but Dr. Russell Van Gelder from the University of Washington School of Medicine warns blindness is a risk if you don't have proper eye protection.

That's when Johann Julius Friedrich Berkowski took the first photograph of a total solar eclipse.

Of course, the closer you get to the totality path the better your experience, but a partial solar eclipse is still pretty awesome and something that only comes along every few years. "This is an once-in-a-lifetime event and we want to invite everyone to Kentucky to see the eclipse". We feel lucky to know someone who will put us up; although we would probably have traveled to the path of totality, regardless.

If you live in New England or along the Mexican border, you'll get the worst view with only about 65 percent of the sun covered by the moon. It's called solar retinopathy, and it's like a sunburn on your retina, and causes spots in your vision that may or may not go away.

The much anticipated eclipse of 2017 is nearly here.

It is never safe to look directly at the sun's rays - even if the sun is partly obscured - except with special eclipse glasses and, indications are, they're getting hard to find. "Once the damage is done, there's no coming back". The spot is permanent and will not fix itself.

Eclipse glasses are relatively cheap anywhere from $3 to around $10, but be sure the glasses are specifically made to handle the concentration of light.

One important thing to remember especially for pet owners is that just like our own eyes, our pets' eyes may incur damages from directly looking at the sun as well. "Normal sunglasses, binoculars, or telescopes will not protect your eyes from the damaging direct rays of the sun".

Solar eclipse glasses allow the user to stare at the sun without the potential for harm to the viewers eyes. Library staff will distribute NASA certified eclipse glasses to the first 175 patrons.

"Our library was granted 1,000 glasses to distribute in our region through StarNet", said Heggestad. -USA, the National Renewable Energy Lab, American Geophysical Union, Geological Society of America, Association of Rural and Small Libraries, and many more. K Brew will also give a pair of glasses with the purchase of its "Iced Eclipse Tonic".
