Ready for the #solareclipse tomorrow! I'll help you get ready to head back to school and back to work in the morning on @cbsmiami starting at 5am ! Tune in for our special coverage of the #eclipse2017
I'll have your #backtoschool & #eclipse forecast!
Please make sure to check in with your schools & teachers to find out if there is an early release or any special plans for the Eclipse. NASA warns those who plan to watch not to stare at the eclipse directly because that could cause serious damage to your eyes. The only one way to safely view a partial or total eclipse is with certified solar glasses – simple sunglasses are not enough. The Eclipse starts at 1:26pm with the peak occurring around 2:58 pm. Here in South Florida the sun will be obscured by 80% when the moon passes in front of it. But you still need to be safe if you plan on viewing this historic event which ends at 4:20 pm
The American Astronomical Society has a list of reputable eclipse glasses and hand-held viewers on its website – stamped with this approval code – 12312-2.
You can watch it live on #cbs4 And CBSMiami.com #solareclipse2017
