Solar Eclipse 2017 : 21 Aug 2017 : Solar Glasses and Safety


Human beings are curious by nature, most of us will look up in the sky and stare at the Sun. However, this is very DANGEROUS!

The danger is not visible to the eyes. The moment your eyes focused on the Sun, your retina begins to get “cooked” by UV and infrared light. Unfortunately, due to lack of pain receptors in the retina, you wouldn’t able to feel this pain. Retinas can be scarred within seconds

A eclipse viewer is what you need to safely observe the Sun during an eclipse. It blocks 99.999% of visible light, as well as the harmful UV and infrared.

Please remember to use proper equipment to observe the eclipse!
