Yesterday was the day! With the last time North America experiencing a Total Solar Eclipse being in 1979, we officially witnessed one after 38 years of waiting! Though this is a moment some of us may not ever get to experience again, there are still precautions that we hope you made in order to fully enjoy such a rare event.
If you forgot about the solar glasses and feel pain in your head or eyes today, please give us a call so we can take a look!
Our eyes cannot handle direct contact with the sun. It can severely damage our vision, so it is important that you and your family enjoy the experience properly. During the process in which the moon is transitioning in front of the sun, you should not look directly at it with the naked eye. Even standard sunglasses will not offer the right protection, so if you would like to observe, you must use specially-made eclipse glasses to protect your eyes. The only time that you may look with the naked eye is when the moon completely encompasses the sun. We urge you to get a pair if you didnt this time around for the next eclipse that will hit it’s apex in DFW in 2024.
We hope you enjoyed the Total Solar Eclipse yesterday! We sure did.
