Uh, No. You CAN'T Wear Your Sunglasses For The Eclipse

To observe that you will have to travel out of state - see the maps on https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov. As seen from here in Northeast Wisconsin, the moon will begin to pass in front of the sun at 11:53 a.m.

Whether you're planning on going to an eclipse viewing party or just sitting out on a blanket in your backyard, you may want to plan ahead on how you'll actually be viewing the celestial event. Mission Valley Eye Center/Ronan Eye Clinic has generously sponsored the purchase of more than 200 pairs of solar eclipse glasses that we will have available that day for safe viewing. The lenses of these paper or plastic framed glasses will be so obscuring that unless you are looking at something as bright as the sun, you won't see anything at all. This is the first total solar eclipse in the lower 48 states since 1979 and the first coast-to-coast eclipse since 1918.

Columbia is pitching itself as the "Total Eclipse Capital of the East Coast" because the city will experience 2 minutes, 36 seconds of blackout beginning at 2:42 p.m., longer than any metro area on the eastern seaboard.

Three telescopes equipped with solar filters will be set up, and a limited quantity of solar viewers will be available.

"Filters that are ISO 12312-2 compliant not only reduce visible sunlight to safe and comfortable levels but also block solar UV and IR radiation", officials said. Here is an example from 2001 when a total eclipse passed over Zambia and dropped the air temperature nearly 15 degrees.

But one thing is clear: Demand for eclipse glasses is unusually high, and companies have been cranking them out. For those in the path of totality - a thin path only 70 miles wide stretching from OR to SC - the sun will be completely blocked by the moon for about 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Other ideas for viewing the sun safely are to build a pinhole camera or reflect an image of the sun off a mirror in an envelope where you have cut a small hole in the envelope. The company started planning for this eclipse about two years ago and hired around 60 additional workers. "We will also have goggles and glasses specifically made to look at the sun".

Viewing the eclipse takes some preparation.
