🌘 WARNING: between hours of 12-4 pm to be sage ( but check your local news stations to confirm)
Don’t forget not to look up at the sun or let your kids look up into the sky even for a few seconds. . It can blind you if you look at the sun today!! You can get special glasses that can protect them, regular sunglasses will “NOT” protect your eyes!!

It may seem harmless, but looking at a solar eclipse with naked eyes can cause serious eye injury and even permanent damage to your eyes. Excessive amounts of ultraviolet radiation can cause photokeratitis, which is much like a sunburn to the eyes. Looking directly at the sun during an eclipse can also cause solar retinopathy.

We highly suggest you check with your local news outlets or doctors and do your own research.)
