Designer eyewear retailer Warby Parker was also providing solar eclipse glasses, but they are also all out.

There will be eclipse ice cream and projection viewers at each location.

To view the eclipse safely, you need a special filter.

Angela Speck, director of astronomy and a professor of astrophysics at the University of Missouri, said at a conference recently: 'On a normal day, your pets don't try to look at the sun, and therefore don't damage their eyes.

On Monday, August 21, a total solar eclipse will pass over North America, the first time one has crossed completely over the continent since 1979.

Although Florida is not in the path of totality, meaning Floridians won't be able to see the full eclipse, we will be able to witness a almost 80 percent eclipse. The sun will be partially eclipsed for just under two and a half hours from 9:09 a.m. until 11:34 a.m.

Locals who already go their solar eclipse glasses are already cashing in too.

On the tackle, Mourinho said: "There is always a risk but Paul is a clean player, he wants to play football all the time". Pogba scored five goals in 30 Premier League appearances last season following his then world-record return from Juve.

And Dr. Schadlu says the severity of the damage can vary.

Fut told Metro that he's getting calls about solar eclipse glasses every three minutes. The glasses block out 99.9 percent of the sun's light, allowing you to look at it for extended periods of time. Then, and only then, turn around to the sun.

"Eye wear protection is crucial while viewing the solar eclipse", said Chen. Never use photographic filters, sunglasses, exposed film, X-ray film, or CDs.

Looking into straight into sun is almost impossible to do for longer than a few seconds at a time, but just those few seconds are all it takes damage to your eyes permanently. Do not view the eclipse directly through binoculars or telescopes, even when wearing solar filters as these devices can optically amplify the intensity of the sun's rays. Before the eclipse, yoga instructor Giuliano Geronymo will lead a sunrise "sound healing treatment" using crystal bowl singing and drumming.

Student Activities and Student Organizations (SASO) is partnering with UAstronomy to host an eclipse viewing, complete with space-themed snacks.

She says one method is to cross your outstretched fingers of both hands in a criss cross pattern. The spaces between the outstretched fingers will project a grid of images showing the sun as a crescent during the eclipse.
