Amazon recalls glasses 9 days before total solar eclipse

Amazon recalls glasses 9 days before total solar eclipse

NY is not in line to see the total solar eclipse, but - weather-permitting - Staten Islanders will be able to view a partial eclipse.

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.

Space India recently organised a series of online interactions with Padma Y Fisher, Senior Research Scientist at the Space Science Institute, California, to take students, researchers, and astronomers through a detailed experience of the total solar eclipse. You will need special eclipse or solar viewers to look at the sun safely.

Stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses or solar viewer before looking up at the bright sun.

Always supervise children using solar filters.

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. Even very dark sunglasses can not protect your eyes while looking directly at the sun. The intense solar rays coming through these devices will damage the solar filter and your eyes. Transportation officials in Georgia warned people to make sure they have enough gasoline, especially if they're traveling to the northern part of the state, which will have a good view of the eclipse, so that no one becomes an "eclipse refugee".
