The Imminent Solar Eclipse of 2024: A Guide to Safe and Enjoyable Viewing

 April 7, 2024

A Cosmic Marvel on the Horizon

On April 8, 2024, a rare total solar eclipse will pass over the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, offering millions the chance to witness the moon completely block out the sun. This thrilling event will reveal our star's ghostly atmosphere, turning day into deep twilight. However, to experience this rare eclipse opportunity comfortably and safely requires a bit of know-how. Here's what you should avoid doing during this event.


Don't Drive During the Eclipse

The total eclipse experience is intense, with the temperature dropping and day quickly darkening. This can easily distract drivers, increasing the odds of accidents. "A lot of people will be very distracted at that point — avoid traffic at that time," advises one expert. If you must drive, stay vigilant.

Resist the Urge to Snap Photos

Don't be tempted to snap photos. The eclipse is a moment to be lived, not viewed through a lens. Instead, focus on the experience and let the professionals handle the photography.


Happy Birthday to Akeem Ogunmilade - MD Xphrame Media.

Safety First: Use Vetted Solar-Viewing Glasses

When it comes to viewing the eclipse, safety is paramount. Make sure you purchase vetted solar-viewing glasses. Some vendors may claim their products meet the international safety standard (ISO 12312-2) for looking directly at the sun.

Don't Remove Your Glasses Until Totality

During the eclipse, don't remove your glasses until the sun is completely blocked. "You can view the eclipse directly without proper eye protection only when the moon completely obscures the sun’s bright face — during the brief and spectacular period known as totality," explains NASA. As soon as you see even a little bit of the bright sun reappear after totality, immediately put your eclipse glasses back on.

Don't Rush Off Right After the Eclipse

Finally, don't rush off right after the solar eclipse. If you leave immediately after the event, you'll likely hit traffic. Instead, make it a day trip. Bring supplies, bring friends, and enjoy the experience. "Arrive early. Stay put. And leave late," is the recommended approach.

A Unique Opportunity

The greater eclipse event will last some two-and-a-half hours, offering a unique opportunity to glimpse planets in the darkened sky. Weather-permitting, Venus and Jupiter will be particularly radiant.

Remember, this is a rare and spectacular event. Prepare well, stay safe, and enjoy the cosmic marvel that is a total solar eclipse.
