Lake Mead National Recreation Area is having a free solar eclipse viewing party at its visitor center on August 21 from 9:00 a.m.to noon.

While no data exists for how many made-for-eclipse eyeglasses are in circulation overall, shady distributors of purportedly solar-safe shades abound on the Internet, Fienberg said. Looking at the sun directly, even just the sliver of sun visible before the total eclipse, can cause permanent eye damage. Normal sunglasses don't provide enough protection. Watching the celestial event is a rare experience, but it also carries a lot of dangers.

Astronomical society members will set up telescopes with protective solar filters and will have projectors available so people can see the eclipse up close, the news release said. They are being distributed one per person on a first come first serve basis while supplies last.

The Russian Defense Ministry said that the strategic town was completely liberated at 7 am. The White Helmets emerged in 2013, working to rescue civilians in rebel-held areas.

The AAS and NASA have posted a list of reputable solar filter brands, retail distributors and online dealers. The American Astronomical Society, a NASA partner, has verified that these manufacturers are making eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers that meet the ISO 12312-2 worldwide standard for such products. Turn away from the sun before removing the solar filter. The optical device concentrates the sun's light, which can damage the solar viewer and then your eyes.
