This evening you can witness a solar eclipse. In case you forgot a solar eclipse happens when the moon is in between the Earth and Sun.
This is the first solar eclipse in United States since 1994 and even though we won't witness a full eclipse here in the Valley, I've been told it will be a good show. Here are your eclipse details:
Starts at 5:29 pm Sunday evening.
Peaks at 6:39 pm Sunday night.
DO NOT STARE AT THE SUN OR ECLIPSE DIRECTLY WITH NAKED EYES! PERMANENT OCULAR DAMAGE WILL HAPPEN!
WARNING: DO NOT look directly at the eclipse with your naked eye. Binoculars and telescopes magnify the damaging effects, so don't stare at the eclipes with those devices. Looking at the eclipse or the sun directly can cause permanent damage. You don't need to burn your cornea to learn Braille.
Did I tell you viewing the eclipse can do permanent damage to your eye? It can.
FOX 10 has this video with a good diagram on how an eclipse works along with a story here.
