The Solar Eclipse is coming! Are you ready?? The last solar eclipse was in 1979! I remember making a viewing box out of a cereal box when I was six years old.
Now, that’s a fun craft project….if you’re into that sort of thing.
That’s why I’m heading over to Tanga. Get this Solar Eclipse Glasses (Pack of 6) for only $7.99 Shipped (Reg. $24.99). The glasses are ISO & CE Certified Safety Shades For Direct Sun Viewing.
Certain areas of the United States will be completely black for just a few minutes time, and that means you’ll be tempted to stare directly at the sun, but don’t! Even just a few seconds can do damage.
The eclipse is on Monday, August 21st and will start in Oregon at about 10:15am PST and ends in Charleston around 3pm EST.
For many kids, it’ll be the first day of school. Hopefully, teachers will let them take a break and experience this super-cool event.
My kids don’t go back until August 28th, so I’m sure we’re going to be outside burning wholes in our retinas.
Now, if you want to get all crafty and make a viewing box, here’s a great video to help you out…
