2017 Eclipse

On Monday August 21, 2017 a solar eclipse will pass over North America, during this event is extremely important to protect your eyes against potential damage and blindness. The intensity of the sun's rays can cause painless irreversible damage to the sensitive vision receptors in your retina. Regular sunglasses, tinted lenses and filters do not provide adequate protection, only lenses with an ISO certification are recommended, please be careful of fake materials that have been advertised recently. The best and safest place to watch this event is on TV or on your computer.NASA will be live streaming this event at https:/ Life is worth seeing, protect your eyes
