If you didn’t know by now… you DO need to wear special Eclipse glasses to see Monday’s Solar Eclipse!! This will be the FIRST Solar Eclipse visible in parts of the U.S. since 1979 and the first TOTAL Solar Eclipse to cross the country in 99 years.

Not only is it harmful for your eyes if you don’t have the glasses but you won’t be able to see anything because the glasses filter out majority of the sunlight.

Once you get your glasses, MAKE SURE

  • First thing is to make sure your glasses aren’t damaged.
  • Do NOT remove the glasses while still looking at the sun.
  • Do NOT look at the sun through a camera, telescope, binoculars or other devices.
  • If you normally wear eyeglasses just put the Eclipse glasses over them.
