Pioneer Library System to focus on solar eclipse

Although we won't see a ideal alignment in the United Kingdom, we will be able to see a partial eclipse (where the Moon covers only a part of the Sun).

On August 21، the Moon will slide in front of the Sun and for a brief moment، day will melt into a dusky night in the US.

The total solar eclipse is expected to bring as many as 1 million visitors to OR and has been a boon to businesses cashing in on the influx of tourists. We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse. 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 Bravas and Ragin' Cajun food trucks also will be parked nearby so people can enjoy food while they watch.

Amazon is refunding customer purchases for protective solar eclipse glasses that it hasn't been able to confirm come from a reputable manufacturer, according to a safety notification from the company. The device will have a webcam and a solar filter fitted to it, which will enable streaming directly on the official YouTube channel of Space India and will also be available on the organisation's website.

Of course eclipse viewers there will miss out on seeing the sun's corona shooting out from the edge of the moon, but at least it'll still get dark and creepy outside. If someone views the eclipse improperly, without wearing the right eye protection - even briefly - they will have a permanent blind spot in the center of their vision for the rest of their life. Even very dark sunglasses can not protect your eyes while looking directly at the sun.

Always supervise children using solar filters. After glancing at the sun, turn away and then remove your filter - do not remove it while looking at the sun.

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