Cart-Away’s 3 Tips to enjoy the Total Solar Eclipse.
On August 21st there will be a once in a lifetime event that will carve a path 90 miles wide across the United Stated. If where you live or work happens to be in that path, you will witness a total solar eclipse, probably for the first time in your life. So, we here at Cart-Away decided to put a list together of ways to enjoy the eclipse while you’re at work or at home.
- Provide safety viewing glasses for your employees. Wearing ordinary sunglasses (or even multiple pairs) will not provide adequate eye protection. You can damage your eyes if you are not using proper safety equipment to view the eclipse, viewing a solar eclipse without proper eye protection can cause “eclipse blindness” or retinal burns, also known as solar retinopathy. The owner of Cart-Away purchased The Eclipser Safe Solar glasses for all of his employees to use during the Solar Eclipse. It was a small investment that will insure that his employees will be able to return to work safely after the eclipse is over.
- Keep it simple. Don’t spend the entire time filming or taking pictures. Enjoy this once in a lifetime event while just being in the moment. Everyone and their brothers will be filming and or taking pictures. You can always steal their video or pictures after the fact and claim it as your own. If you choose to take some pictures of the eclipse please make sure you’re using a solar filter to protect your eyes and to capture this amazing event in all its glory.
- What if the weather is cloudy or you’re not in the path of the eclipse? Fear not, you can still watch the eclipse live. NASA will have live video stream of the total eclipse from NASA television and locations across the country. Even if you’re not in the path of the total eclipse, above is a map of the partial eclipse in your area. Here is that link to NASA’s main page. https://www.nasa.gov/
Take the time to experience this event and create a great memory at the same time.
