๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒ‘ Solar Eclipse Safety Alert ๐ŸŒ‘๐ŸŒž

SGA reminds you to protect your eyes during a solar eclipse!

Mark your calendars! On Monday, April 8, 2024, we're in for a celestial treat with a solar eclipse from 2:04 p.m. to 4:31 p.m. ๐ŸŒ˜ The peak moment? That mesmerizing 3:19 p.m. when the Moon steals the spotlight from the Sun. ๐ŸŒ•โžก๏ธ๐ŸŒ‘ Since many of us will be on the move around then, it's crucial to prep and stay safe.

๐Ÿ‘€ How to Safeguard Your Eyes During the Eclipse:

1๏ธโƒฃ No direct staring! Seriously, it's a major eye no-no, and that's especially true during an eclipse. Permanent damage? No thanks!

2๏ธโƒฃ Wanna catch a glimpse? Use certified solar eclipse viewers or filters meeting ISO 12312-2 standards. They'll give you a safe, clear view that won't leave you seeing spots.

3๏ธโƒฃ Homemade hacks like sunglasses or random camera lenses? Nope, don't even think about it. Stick to the eclipse-viewing gear the pros recommend.

4๏ธโƒฃ If the view's too bright, out of focus, or just feels off, ditch the viewer or filter. Better safe than sorry!

5๏ธโƒฃ When in doubt, chuck it out! Stick with reputable sources for your eclipse gear to ensure you're keeping those peepers protected.
