I got burned: Some possible leads for certified Solar Glasses

Fayetteville Public Library - The library is giving away the glasses while supplies last during an eclipse prep event on Sunday (Aug. 13) from 1:30-4 p.m.

In an email sent to buyers of the unverified glasses, Amazon told customers "We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse".

NASA is set to study the Earth's ionosphere during the upcoming total solar eclipse in the US،to better understand the Sun's relationship to the region of the atmosphere where satellites orbit and radio signals are reflected towards our planet، according to the Indian Express. Looking directly at the eclipse at any moment except the brief period when the moon has fully eclipsed the sun without certified glasses could damage your eyes. Oregon's Department of Transportation said the eclipse will cause "the biggest traffic event in OR history" as visitors descend on the state in cars and camper vans.

The only safe way to look directly at the sun, whether during an eclipse or not, is through special-purpose solar filters. This ever-changing region grows and shrinks based on solar conditions، and researchers will use the eclipse as a ready-made experiment. Read and follow any instructions printed on or packaged with the filter.

In areas where it'll be a total solar eclipse, from the Pacific Northwest through Missouri and down to SC, it'll still get really dark - pitch black like night - even if overcast. The interaction consisted of an interesting presentation on Total Solar Eclipse containing the information on different types of eclipses, reasons behind them, research work going on in this field. The optical device concentrates the sun's light, which can damage the solar viewer and then your eyes.

Always supervise children using solar filters.

As eclipse glasses sell out at retailers across the USA, customers are panicking as they realize that their glasses may not arrive in time for the once-in-a-lifetime event.
