Lake Mead National Recreation Area is having a free solar eclipse viewing party at its visitor center on August 21 from 9:00 a.m.to noon. The event is free to those who pre-registered. Children ages 9 and under must be accompanied by an adult. But in the so-called "path of totality" where Levesque is headed, spanning from OR to SC, viewers will be able to see the total eclipse in all its glory. Watching the celestial event is a rare experience, but it also carries a lot of dangers.

Here in OR, we won't see another total solar eclipse until 2169, when one will cross Portland, Seattle, Boise and Salt Lake City - though another one glances the OR coast in 2108.

Eclipse viewing glasses also will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis on the library plaza, the news release said. Never look directly at the sun without eye protection, even briefly. The AOA encourages ordering solar eclipse glasses in advance and recommends referring to the American Astronomical Society's site for a list of manufacturers.

Inspect solar filters before use. Read and follow any instructions printed on or packaged with the filter. Turn away from the sun before removing the solar filter.

Amazon recently sent out an email to customers to let them know some of the solar eclipse glasses they have been selling were not confirmed safe for viewing the eclipse.

If you received this email from Amazon, there are other places to purchase eclipse glasses.
