Protect Your Vision During the Partial Solar Eclipse

August 21, 2017

Weather conditions permitting, the New York City area will experience a partial solar eclipse from approximately 1 to 4 p.m. on Monday, August 21st.

NEVER look directly at the sun, including a full or partial eclipse, without certified solar filters/glasses. Doing so can cause permanent damage to your eyes, including possible blindness.

Always inspect solar filters for damage or scratches. Please supervise children using filters or glasses and never use telescopes, binoculars, or cameras to view an eclipse if these devices are not equipped with their own certified filters.
