NASA says your eclipse glasses may be unsafe. Here's how to tell if they're not
The total solar eclipse is to occur on Aug 21, 2017. The astronomical event will make a long, 70-mile-wide path from the Pacific Northwest to the Southeast, crossing 14 states including southern Idaho.
According to Morehead Planetarium, this will be the first total solar eclipse in the 48 contiguous states since 1979, and the first total solar eclipse visible from the Carolinas since 1970.
Answer: Yes, assuming the skies are clear, Winston-Salem should get a good view of the eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21. No matter what, don't gaze directly at it, which is of course common knowledge. Regular sunglasses may be used to protect the eyes from the harmful rays of the sun but these should not used as a replacement for eclipse viewing glasses.
"There are unsafe paper solar glasses being distributed", said NASA in a release Friday.
