Solar Eclipse Safety
Shockingly, I haven’t seen one post about this yet. But the solar eclipse is happening right away and I want this solidly spoken:
Do Not Look At The Sun.
The light from the sun is HIGHLY concentrated and you can and will go BLIND if you look at it. From what I have heard, the ONLY way to look at the sun during the eclipse is through #14 or higher welding glasses or specially designed eclipse glasses.
- Do Not Try To Make Your Own Lenses That Are Not The Proper Welding Transparency or Specially Designed For Viewing The Eclipse
The eclipse can and will ruin your camera lenses as well unless you have a special solar lense in use.
- Do Not Try To View The Eclipse Through Your Camera Lense, It Will Still Harm Your Eyes
Please do not stare at the sun or even glance up at the eclipse. Don’t be afraid, but please be aware.
Bring Your Animals Inside
The eclipse could harm them as well, although chances are slim they will even notice. If you are able, keep them inside and away from the windows.
