!How to Safely Watch a Solar Eclipse

Dear Furiends,mtele

This is a reminder that s solar eclipse will a month from now (Monday, August 21, 2017 & it will be visible in North America – see chart below).

A solar eclipse happens when the moon blocks any or all parts of the sun. The one I’m patiently waiting for on August 21st will last for  2 to 3 hours, which is awesome! (Bright stars and planets ten_unique_placeswill become visible as well.)

However, this post is about the safety aspect – I don’t want any of you dear furiends hurting your eyes, so please watch NASA’s 1 minute, but very informative video.

Be safe, as you keep an eye on the sky, dear furiends!

    Very informative! Yes, i knew not to look at it directly without special lenses. We won’t be in the path of totality, but i’m sure we will see some of it, and i promise to be careful.

    1. It would be very upsetting if any of my dear furiends hurt their eyes. We aren’t in the path, either, so are hoping to get some sort of a view, or at very least, photos from the event. =^.^=
