Safety Considerations

Remember to never look directly into the sun - on Eclipse Day on any other day. The UV rays coming from the sun can damage your eyes. Also, make sure to get your special Eclipse glasses specially made for viewing the Eclipse at the Rock Springs or Green River chambers or at the Sweetwater Events Complex viewing events.  These special Eclipse glasses filter out all of the harmful ultraviolet and infrared light and almost all of the intense visible light to allow you to view the eclipse safely.
