Google Project Gives Away Thousands Of Total Solar Eclipse Glasses

Google Project Gives Away Thousands Of Total Solar Eclipse Glasses

On Aug. 21, we're going to experience a total solar eclipse - but if you were planning on relying on your phone for communication purposes while it's happening, heads up: You might have some cell phone trouble during the eclipse.

The moon will pass in front of the sun but never stare into the sun, or an eclipse. The site also tells you exactly how much of the sun will be covered by the moon during the eclipse. The total eclipse will hit Carbondale this year at 1:21 p.m. local time and last for 2 minutes and 20 seconds.

Assuming you haven't been living in a cave - in which case this news wouldn't interest you anyway - you know there's a solar eclipse happening on August 21st.

To prevent injury, all observers are advised to wear eye protection in the form of approved eclipse glasses that meet occupational eye and face protection standards (ANSI Z81.1/ISO 12312-2). The glasses will be available to attendees at the event on a first-come, first-served basis, Library Director Jackie Icenhower said, and won't be handed out in advance.

Dr. Fitzgerald says that directly viewing the sun can cause blindness and special solar eclipse glasses are needed.

"Just because there's an eclipse doesn't mean the sun lessens in power".

There are four main types of solar eclipse: partial, annular, total and hybrid. There are instructions on the NASA and American Astronomical Society websites.

India beat Sri Lanka in first test, Virat Kohli broke Sachin's record
Sri Lanka added 135 in the morning session at a healthy run-rate but lost three vital wickets in the process. Mathews' dismissal brought Karunaratne and Niroshan Dickwella together in a 101-run fifth-wicket stand.


It's going to fall across America from OR to SC along a path 60 to 70 miles wide. All these methods are unsafe for looking at an eclipse. Experience totality, then, as soon as the bright sun begins to reappear, replace your solar viewer to look at the remaining partial phases.

Hawley, a physics and astronomy professor and the director of engineering physics at the University of Kansas, advised booking any travel tickets and hotel reservations way ahead of time and to expect plenty of traffic on the road.

- Look for eclipse glasses or hand-held devices labeled as compliant with the ISO 12312-2 worldwide standard.

Not be used if they are older than three years, or have scratched or wrinkled lenses.

According to the American Astronomical Society, just four manufacturers have certified that their eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers meet the ISO 12312-2 global standard for such products: Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical and TSE 17. When they line up just right, the moon can obscure the sun's entire surface, creating a total solar eclipse.

Whether you're handy or not, don't even think about watching the eclipse through conventional sunglasses (even ones with very dark lenses).
