Where to buy solar eclipse glasses in Richmond

Her husband told her of the event, and she has always been interested in things happening in the sky.

About 200 pairs will be available at the Comcast Eclipse Experience, which will take place august 21 in Coolidge Park from noon to 4 p.m. Area food trucks will be on-site. This unbelievable event lasts only about 2 minutes and is safe to watch, but the partial eclipse that happens before and after can permanently damage your vision.

The event is expected to bring millions of sky-watchers to the path of totality. Many will see it.

Brookhaven's emergency Management Coordinator advises taking adequate precautions when viewing the near total eclipse.

Never look at an uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun without proper fitting solar eclipse glasses that meet or exceed ISO 12312-2.

"You can't tell just by looking at them and you can't even tell just by looking through them, with one exception", Fienberg says.

The last eclipse in 1979 had the country buzzing and people made their own glasses to watch it. Hence, people travel to see a total solar eclipse and eclipse day will see many Americans on the road - adjusting their plans as some places have a cloudy forecast perhaps while others appear more promising.

You will also need to use solar filter on cameras, binoculars and telescopes and don't use eclipse glasses to look through them. "There is no charge for the glasses, but glasses are limited to one per person". But in the event of an eclipse, the effect can be even more intense.

Leonard Bates, 80, was just nine years old when he saw his first eclipse. About 60% of the sun will be covered-up by the moon, which makes for a "partial eclipse". It will sweep across the country, touching Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and SC before ending its land passage and heading out to sea just after 4:00 p.m. EDT. In Indiana, there will be a partial eclipse with 91 percent totality, beginning at approximately 2:25 p.m. and lasting approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes.

A total eclipse's real wow factor is the "diamond-ring effect", the few seconds at the beginning and at the end of totality when the sun's corona is visible around the moon's edge, creating a glowing "ring", while the last bit of sunlight shines through the moon's hills and valleys, creating the shimmering "diamond".

And the big question is: where can you buy solar eclipse viewing glasses? Be safe and enjoy!
