Be sure to protect your eyes during the solar eclipse

An eclipse boat tour at the above parks.

Some are saying it will be the most-watched show in the USA and although Southwest Florida residents will not be able to see the full eclipse, viewers can still suffer from irreversible eye damage, said Doctor Jonathan Frantz, owner of Frantz Eye care in Lee County.

In the East Bay, Chabot Space & Science Center will open from 8 a.m.to 1 p.m. for telescope viewings and will feature a live feed of the total eclipse in the museum's theater. Prior to that, the last eclipse to traverse from coast to coast was June 8, 1918. Throughout the continental United States, people outside the path of totality will witness a partial eclipse, as the shadow of the moon covers or eclipses some portion of the sun.

The solar eclipse is August 21.

At Lake Mead, 71 percent of the sun will be eclipsed.

The solar eclipse glasses allow people to safely observe the eclipse without risking damage to their eyes.

The eclipse will happen August 21 at roughly 1:30 p.m. and will end by four.

As eclipse glasses sell out at retailers across the U.S., customers are panicking as they realize that their glasses may not arrive in time for the once-in-a-lifetime event.

Rantoul Public Library will host a solar eclipse program for all ages from noon-2 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21. Wearing ordinary sunglasses (or even multiple pairs) will not provide adequate eye protection.

Leonard Bates was nine years old when he saw his first eclipse and the 80-year-old made his own viewer instead of using solar glasses.

Even binoculars and telescopes can magnify the sun's rays and become harmful to the eye, Frantz said.
