Many Eclipse Enthusiast host parties/ get together's in local community centers, museums, and observatories. An Eclipse is a very interesting thing to observe. We will be observing this eclipse today, the 21st of August in the US for the first time in 99 years! Stay safe! put on protective glasses.
It is told that without using special protection while watching an Eclipse can cause permanent eye damage. This is called Solar Retinopathy, where the bright light from the sun floods the retina on the back of the eye. When the eye is over stimulated from the sun, they release a flood of chemicals that can damage the retina. Wear protective eye wear!
I decided to research about Solar Eclipse's. A Solar Eclipse is when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth. The first Eclipse in a while will occur Monday, August 21st 2017. Scientist infer that the longest Eclipse that will occur will be on June 25th 2522.
