New Bell Schedules for 2017-2018
August 21, 2017
On Monday, August 21st, we will have a rare opportunity to witness a solar eclipse. Since this is a rare occurrence, many people may not be aware of the safety concerns with attempting to view the eclipse. There are many resources available that address this topic, but three reputable ones are the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the National Safety Council, and the last one which both of these refer to, is The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). We strongly encourage you to refer to these resources before making plans to view the eclipse, but some of the key safety points include:
Never look directly into the sun without proper eye protection/solar filters.
Make sure solar viewing eyewear/filters meet the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard (should be indicated directly on the eyewear).
Consider various “indirect viewing” options for experiencing the eclipse that avoid direct viewing entirely.
