Local science organizations offer help to prepare for the solar eclipse

Library giving out 500 pairs of eclipse glasses on Monday

Got a spot picked to watch the eclipse? Ferndale has the perfect event to learn something, too

Kathy McNeilly, second from right, director of the Oak Ridge Public Library, and library employees presented a pair of solar eclipse glasses to City Manager Mark Watson, center, on Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017.

From noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Science Central, 1950 N. Clinton St., will hold an AWS Special Abilities and Solar Eclipse Preparation Day for people with disabilities and for the general public. Looking at the sun directly, even just the sliver of sun visible before the total eclipse, can cause permanent eye damage.

Even as makers of certified, safety-tested solar eye ware rushed to meet surging demand before the August 21 eclipse, they have joined astronomers and optometrists in warning of defective knockoffs flooding the US market. They are being distributed one per person on a first come first serve basis while supplies last. Homemade sun filters and regular sunglasses do not provide sufficient eye protection.

McDonald's locations in OR are on NASA and the American Astronomical Society's list of certified retailers of eclipse glasses, which allow you to safely watch the solar eclipse on August 21. If it is scratched or damaged, throw it away.

The AAS and NASA have posted a list of reputable solar filter brands, retail distributors and online dealers.

NPS said to view the sun during the eclipse, use eclipse glasses or a handheld solar viewer.
