Amazon recalls solar eclipse glasses

Portland resident Dan Fellini bought a pack of four solar eclipse glasses with his wife and a friend.

"We've SOLD OUT of Eclipse Glasses!" "Also, never look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope or binoculars, even if you are wearing eclipse glasses or holding solar filters".

Anyone planning to watch the solar eclipse outside on August 21 must wear certified solar glasses to protect their eyes from the damaging rays of the sun.

Buzzfeed is now reporting that a auto drove into a group of anti-racist protesters, injuring at least 19 people. Mr Trump said: "We condemn this egregious display of bigotry and violence on many side , on many sides".


When purchasing eclipse glasses be certain ISO 12312-2 (or EN1836) is printed somewhere on them.

Some McDonald's locations outside of OR - including Missouri and Washington - are also selling eclipse glasses.

"Staring at the sun for even a short time without the right protective eyewear can damage your retina permanently and even cause blindness called solar retinopathy", Dr. Timothy Minton said.

The ARF, launched in 1994, is a rare multilateral diplomatic stage to which North Korea also sends its foreign minister annually. But Wang, the Chinese envoy, cast Ri's presence in Manila as a positive, enabling him to "hear the voices from other sides".


However, it's essential that anyone planning to watch the eclipse gets proper eye protection. "It doesn't take very long before you're exposing your eyes to serious risk".

According to optometrist Wes Wheadon looking at the sun without or with improper eyewear can have devastating effects. The eclipse will be visible here from about noon to 3 p.m.

If you're buying eclipse glasses, you'll also want to be sure they're not cheap knock-offs, Fienberg said. Those glasses were among those that were deemed safe. The full list can be found at eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters. However, these locations are not certified by NASA and the American Astronomical Society. Pinhole viewers create a reflection of the eclipse by filtering the light through a small opening. This certification is used to indicate they are safe for viewing the sun.
