Tips To Stay Safe While Watching Sunday's Eclipse!

Updated: 05/20/2012 - Tonight, Coloradans will be treated to a spectacular show in the sky courtesy of Mother Nature. An annular (ring-shaped) eclipse will be visible within a narrow corridor of the Earth's northern hemisphere--and though Colorado will not be in the path of the "ring of fire," it will be within the range to see a significant portion of the eclipse. For optimal viewing, NASA suggests standing under a tree to watch "the sight of a thousand ring-shaped sunbeams swaying back and forth on a grassy lawn or sidewalk." Though beautiful, eclipses can be dangerous for your eyes if not viewed properly. Before you cast your eyes to the sky, click here for tips to ensure a safe viewing experience.
