If you are thinking of watching the eclipse on Monday August 21, please protect your eyes! Regular sunglasses are not enough. Unless you use certified glasses that meet international standards for solar viewing, looking at the eclipse could cause permanent vision loss. The light from the sun is very intense and when it is concentrated into a very small area on the back of your eye that light is converted into heat and that heat cooks the retina. This causes a permanent blind spot in the centre of your vision.
If you forgot to purchse the proper viewing glasses it’s not too late. See the link below to see a video on how to make a pinhole camera for safe viewing of the eclipse.
