Here’s what you need to know:
There will be a partial solar eclipse that will last from 11:43 am to 2:42 pm on August 21 in Bryan/College Station. The maximum effect will occur at 1:13 pm. We will not have another solar eclipse until 2024 – and that will be a total eclipse for Texas. We want to make sure that our community SAFELY views the solar eclipse, so we are hosting a FREE eclipse viewing event in the field behind our practice. The event will include:
- Solar viewing glasses that meet NASA’s international standard (ISO 12312-2) and will be purchased from a NASA-approved company.
- Pin-hole projector kits for children to decorate and view the eclipse without looking at the sun
- Finger foods.
- Water, soda, and beer from New Republic Brewing Company (21 and older only)
- Games – Giant Jenga, Washers, Corn Hole
August 21 11:30 am to 2:30 pm
Precision Eye Care, 3975 State Hwy 6 South Ste. 900 College Station, TX 77845. In the field behind our office.
WHAT TO BRING:
- Lawn chair
- Blanket to sit on
- Anything to help you keep cool, i.e. hand-held fan, etc.
HOW TO KEEP YOUR EYES SAFE DURING THE EVENT:
- Read the safety instructions on your eclipse glasses prior to use.
- Inspect your eclipse glasses for any scratches or defects – if there are any, they will NOT protect your eyes.
- Sunglasses, even polarized sunglasses, are NOT sufficient to protect your eyes.
- NEVER look directly at the sun without the eclipse glasses.
- If using the pin-hole projector, face away from the sun to use.
- Always supervise children using solar filters. Do NOT bring them with you if they cannot follow the safety precautions.
- Stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses or solar viewer before looking up at the bright sun. After looking at the sun, turn away and remove your filter — do not remove it while looking at the sun.
- Do NOT look at the partially eclipsed sun through an camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical device without a solar filter specific to that device. Viewing through these objects with eclipse glasses alone is not sufficient. They need their own filter.
LOOKING AT THE SUN UNPROTECTED EVEN FOR JUST A FEW SECONDS CAN RESULT IN PERMANENT BLINDNESS!
