Just a reminder here people.

Cases of retinal burn have already been reported because of people using their solar eclipse glasses looking at the sun then taking them off while still looking at the sun.

The pupils of the eyes are dilated when wearing the glasses and can cause harm hen just viewing the sun.


Just be smart, people.

Thought this another one of your threads going on about rectal burn when I first saw the title.

Oops.

Thanks.
ALSO...don't take pictures without a solar filter, unless you want to trash your camera sensor.

Best to have your intern Gunther stare at it and describe it to you.

Everything is supposed to get dark, right? I've been staring at the sun for the past 15 minutes and now I can't see anything, even indoors..

Weird.

It may as well be, according to the Navajo it's like watching the mating act take place. It gives a new meaning to don't do that you'll go blind. Why don't people listen?

I just checked out how difficult it would be to look through my HGX Prime 1000x and the ambient light from around it; was killing my eyes. Camera is broken so i'm just going to put some cloth over my head to cover that.

Just to add, it is only safe to remove the glasses during complete totality as the sun is completely obscured leaving nothing but a corona and fabulous colours. Entering and leaving totality however, will fry your retinas so please do take care of your eyes.

Go Totality!

Disclosure: I won't see a thing where I am, Holland.

I'm not even in the USA and my retinas are aching thinking about it...

Not that it really matters, most people are blind anyway and it has nothing to do with the Sun.

Let's be extra careful not to turn this event into a political/racist agenda or anything.
