Are you ready for the historic eclipse this Monday, August 21st? No matter where you live in the state of Georgia, you will see at least a partial (90%+ coverage) to a total eclipse. This will be the first total solar eclipse in the U.S. since 1979! The next one will not occur until 2024 but that one does not pass as close to Georgia. But remember, safety FIRST! You can NOT look at it directly even when it is almost completely covered. If you take even a peek, you could damage yours eyes permanently without even knowing it until later, so take precautions. There are several ways to enjoy the eclipse. You can watch it using special eclipse glasses that meet international safety standards (ISO 12312-2). Check your local area stores such as Lowes, Best Buy, Walmart and others to pick up your glasses. You can also view the eclipse using pinhole projection. Check out NASA’s website for more about safety: https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety. On Monday, enjoy this awesome event because they do not happen in our area often, but stay safe!
