Local science organizations offer help to prepare for the solar eclipse

Got a spot picked to watch the eclipse? Ferndale has the perfect event to learn something, too

The eclipse is expected to have 81 percent coverage from this location. The eclipse will be visible here from about noon to 3 p.m.

Science Central's event Sunday will show people how to experience the solar eclipse safely during hands-on activities and demonstrations, the science center said on its website, www.sciencecentral.org.

The public is encouraged to come and learn about the Solar Eclipse that will take place on August 21, and how to view the eclipse safely.

Here in OR, we won't see another total solar eclipse until 2169, when one will cross Portland, Seattle, Boise and Salt Lake City - though another one glances the OR coast in 2108. Oak Ridge is one of the few cities in the path of totality in Tennessee. The American Astronomical Society, a NASA partner, has verified that these manufacturers are making eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers that meet the ISO 12312-2 global standard for such products.

Amazon recently sent out an email to customers to let them know some of the solar eclipse glasses they have been selling were not confirmed safe for viewing the eclipse.
