On 21 August there will be a partial solar eclipse visible from Prince Edward Island.
Approximately 58% of the Sun will be eclipsed beginning mid-afternoon.
Viewing the eclipse with the naked eye can be dangerous and there are safer means to observe it. Projection images and #14 welding glass are two options.
As an amateur astronomer I don’t want anyone to suffer eye damage from observing the universe around us. Consequently I ordered 300 safe solar viewing glasses this morning and expect to receive them within two weeks.
While usually called eclipse shades these glasses can be used for daily observations of the Sun. They will be available for $1 a pair. If anyone would like multiple quantities please reserve in advance.
Please share this with friends and family who may also be observing the eclipse.
Contact me via email or the Facebook group to reserve a pair. You can also use the Contact page on this web site.
