Amazon is recalling glasses that don’t meet ISO standards

Unfortunately, if you were planning to travel to one of the 12 states that are directly in line with the totality, hotels have been sold out for over a year by intrepid solar eclipse fanatics. Eclipse 2017 has a viewing guide, information on the deeper science behind the eclipse, solar research from the foundation, and a livestream of the event.

Eclipse FOMO is real and on the rise as the day of totality draws near, so here's our guide to make sure you don't miss your chance to see it in Boston. Black Sun will show you simulations based on NASA data for the next three solar eclipses, and it's all hosted right on your phone, so it won't matter if you lose cell service. It was so sharp Thursday, we could even watch clouds passing in front of the sun. She says North Texas will see just 75 percent of the sun blocked by the moon (it will not be a "total" eclipse here).

Richland County officials say they want people to feel confident about the safety of the glasses they wear for eclipse viewing and say if you have concerns find another option. The sun and moon are acting together, and so we're having unusually strong tidal conditions.

The library's viewing party is scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m., but beginning at 1 p.m., anyone can start lining up at the library's outdoor tent to get eclipse glasses. I also read about glasses Amazon was selling that suddenly were taken off the market Saturday because they were deemed not safe. The two other types of eclipses are annular and partial. But they can still witness a partial solar eclipse. The skies darken, temperatures drop, and at that point we will be able to see the sun's corona, which is its hazy aura.

Astronomers who teach kids about eclipse safety have heard it all.

The Waynesboro Public Library will offer glasses on the day of the eclipse for those attending the library's events, including a special program story time for children and a special program for adults starting at 1 p.m.

All of these apps will use your phone's Global Positioning System and give you information based on your location, or any other you choose. His location will allow him to shoot photos of the event to share with NMC students. The answer is yes, but only if you are wearing protective glasses.

Ivy Tech Community College at Terre Haute will not be distributing free solar viewing glasses at its Eclipse viewing party on August 21 as had been reported earlier, due to a recall notice from Amazon today.

We can also learn about Earth itself. That's what we did in elementary school for the eclipse in the '70s.

But Hayek said in an interview there were other glasses passes out by the library that are not covered by the warning.
