On Monday, August 21st, sky watchers across the country will experience the Great American Eclipse. Many of our students, with the guidance of our teachers, will be safely watching the solar eclipse and we want you to understand how to watch it safely too.
The only safe way to view a partial eclipse, like the one we will be experiencing in the Bay Area, is directly through special-purpose solar filters or to view it indirectly. Do not to look directly at the sun, as it can cause permanent damage. Please take a moment to review this 2017 Solar Eclipse Safely sheet provided by the American Astronomical Society, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the American Academy of Optometry, the American Optometric Association and the National Science Foundation. Further, NASA recommends additional safety tips to view the solar eclipse. Thank you and enjoy!
