Event Description

Eclipse information for the Denver area can be found at:

Reminder that serious eye damage and blindness will occur if people try to view the eclipse directly without approved eyewear or the indirect viewing devices.  There have been several articles with cautions but it might be helpful to reiterate the message to any children you may know.

It only takes a few seconds to change your life and vision.  

I met a young man in 1974 at the end of college who had his life changed this way.  With all of the hype for this eclipse, I think of him and the hard lesson.

Be safe!

Check out this book about the 1878 rush to Colorado and Wyoming for that solar eclipse.
