Safety Information

 

  • NEVER look at the sun with just your eyes outside of totality. 

 

  • NEVER view the October eclipse without eclipse glasses. 

 

  • Don’t look at the sun with sunglasses. Use certified eclipse glasses from the American Astronomical Society website.

 

  • For the April 8th eclipse, you may need to travel to see totality. Use an interactive eclipse map and find your exact destination, then write down the time in seconds that totality starts and ends there. 

 

  • Wear your glasses until totality hits, and put them on right before totality ends.
