Safety First for Solar Eclipse 2017

Little Rock, Ark. – On Monday, August 21, 2017 all of North America will experience an eclipse of the sun for the first time in 99 years. Arkansas can expect a partial eclipse where 80 to 97 percent of the sun will be covered by the moon. The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) wants to inform Arkansans about how to they can safely view the solar eclipse.

“It is never safe to look directly at the sun,” says Dr. Perry Amerine, Optometrist and State Board of Health Member. “We will not experience a total eclipse in Arkansas. Instead we will have a partial eclipse where the moon will cover all but 3 to 20 percent of the sun. The light from the sun is so powerful that this small amount of the sun will damage your eyes and cause blindness if you look at it directly—even if you look at it for only a few seconds.”

Gazing directly at the sun can cause a permanent blind spot to form on the retina of your eye. How big it is will depend on how long you gazed at the sun, and how badly your retinas are damaged. The retina of your eye is the part of the eye that captures the sharpness and the color of the image you are seeing. When the retina has a blind spot, there will be a blind spot in the center of your vision. People should not assume they can look away quickly enough to avoid eye damage, because every person has different eye sensitivity.

The only safe way to look directly at the sun--even in a partial eclipse--is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” (example shown at left), hand-held solar viewers, or welder’s shade #’s 12-14. Sunglasses, even very dark ones and homemade filters are not strong enough to safely look at the sun. If you are interested in getting special “eclipse glasses”, the American Astronomical Society (AAS) Reputable Vendors of Solar Filters & Viewers has a list of manufacturers and authorized dealers of eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers that have been verified as meeting the international safety standard for such products known as ISO 12312-2.

On August 21, the eclipse will darken the state during the middle of the day and may cause a distraction for drivers. ADH recommends that anyone operating a motor vehicle or boat keep this in mind. Drivers should not stop on the road to view the eclipse. ADH encourages people

to find a safe location for viewing. Drivers and boaters should be mindful of pedestrians, cyclists, watercraft, and other traffic who may be looking skyward.

For more information on the eclipse and safety visit www.eclipse2017.nasa.gov or www.transportation.gov
