Local science organizations offer help to prepare for the solar eclipse

Pioneer Library System to focus on solar eclipse

In central Oklahoma, there will be about a 90 percent eclipsing of the sun, with maximum eclipse at 1:05 p.m.

To safely view the eclipse, pick up ISO certified eclipse glasses.

The total solar eclipse is expected to bring as many as 1 million visitors to OR and has been a boon to businesses cashing in on the influx of tourists.

PGA Championship: Kevin Kisner clinging to one-stroke lead
He finished the tournament at 8 over, three shots off the cut line. "Sometimes, I get a little too aggressive, like on 18". That's what I'm looking to do here". "I'm going to keep it mellow and relaxed like it's been the first two days".

However, it's essential that anyone planning to watch the eclipse gets proper eye protection. Oregon's Department of Transportation said the eclipse will cause "the biggest traffic event in OR history" as visitors descend on the state in cars and camper vans.

Astronomical society members will set up telescopes with protective solar filters and will have projectors available so people can see the eclipse up close, the news release said.

With a week left until Oregon's anticipated total solar eclipse, Amazon has issued a recall for some eclipse glasses the retail giant says might not have come from a recommended manufacturer.

If they meet the standard, you shouldn't be able to see anything through a solar filter except the sun itself. Read and follow any instructions printed on or packaged with the filter. In anticipation of the event, companies have been trying to cash in by selling said glasses, even if they are fake and would do nothing to protect a viewers eyes.

However، the total solar eclipse will also have imperceptible effects، such as the sudden loss of extreme ultraviolet radiation from the Sun، which generates the ionised layer of Earth's atmosphere، called the ionosphere. The optical device concentrates the sun's light, which can damage the solar viewer and then your eyes. Help children to use handheld solar viewers and eclipse glasses correctly. Transportation officials in Georgia warned people to make sure they have enough gasoline, especially if they're traveling to the northern part of the state, which will have a good view of the eclipse, so that no one becomes an "eclipse refugee".

Stars also can appear. "Please be sure to keep your headlights on for your safety throughout the entire day of the eclipse". The glasses should be compliant with the ISO 12312-2 worldwide safety standard and not appear scratched or damaged .
