UPCOMING COMMUNITY EVENTS

 

 

Safe Viewing of the Upcoming Solar Eclipse:

A historic event will occur on Monday, August 21 when Anchorage will experience a solar eclipse.  The Anchorage Emergency Preparedness Committee would like to remind adults and children to prepare for safe viewing.  The only way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special purpose ISO 12312-2 safety approved solar filter eclipse glasses!  

Inspect your solar filter before use, if damaged, or scratched do not use. Supervise children using solar filters. Stand still, cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses before looking at the sun. After viewing the sun, look down away from the sun before removing the solar filter.  Do not remove the filter while looking at the sun.  If you wear glasses, keep them on and place the eclipse glasses over them. Do not look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope  or binoculars.  Solar filters must be attached to any device used to view the solar eclipseSome glasses/viewers are printed with warnings stating that you shouldn't look through them for more than 3 minutes at a time and that you should discard them if they are more than 3 years old. Such warnings are outdated and do not apply to eclipse glasses compliant with the ISO 12312-2 standard adopted in 2015. To make sure you get (or got) your eclipse glasses/viewers from a supplier of ISO-compliant products, here are links to reputable vendors of solar filters and glasses and safe viewing tips.
