We talked with Dr. Christopher Weidig of Springhouse Eye Associates and got a few tips for safely viewing the upcoming Solar Eclipse.
Dr. Weidig says: not to look directly at the eclipse unless wearing protective solar glasses because you can burn your retina and cause permanent damage to your eyes. You can look at the eclipse with these special glasses, or make a pinhole box, or can view it online. The best source for information is at eclipse.aas.org who has a list of vendors for solar glasses.
Ambler & the surrounding area will be able to view a partial Solar Eclipse on Sept. 21, at 2:44pm at a 0.80 magnitude.
