Augusta University wishes to promote safe viewing of the rare and spectacular total solar eclipse on Monday. Normal outdoor activities during the eclipse are safe as long as you are not looking at the sun. Looking at the sun even briefly (more than a half second) without proper filtering will damage your vision. Projecting the image through a lens or pinhole onto paper or a screen is safe. At the end of the Friday symposium approximately 1000 pairs of eclipse glasses will be given away to attendees at the end of the event using a ticket system on a first-come first served basis. Because glasses can easily be shared, and because we want to keep as many people safe as possible, a limit will be enforced such that not every member of a family may get their own glasses (2 glasses per family). .
