Eclipse Viewing FAQs:
Q. Can Eclipse viewing glasses be purchased at Cortez Vision?
A. Unfortunately, no. By selling eclipse viewers in our office, we would be suggesting that it is safe to look in to the sun for any amount of time. Retinal scarring begins after only a few seconds of looking directly in to the sun. Although this is an exciting event, there are much safer ways to view the sun's progress toward eclipse.
Q. Will we be able to see the total eclipse in the Cortez area.
A. No, see the information below for the path of total eclipse.
Q. Can I safely wear eclipse viewing glasses I have purchased elsewhere?
A. If you choose to look directly in to the sun, you do so at your own risk. The safest way to view the progress of the eclipse is via a pinhole viewer (click here for instructions) or via live streaming from nasa.gov

If you're looking for a small construction project to "wow" your friends, follow these instructions (http://richardsont.people.cofc.edu/safe_solar_folder/index.html) to make a solar viewer using cardboard and a lens from over the counter reading glasses.
