Five Things You Must Not Do During Totality At The Solar Eclipse

The Great American Eclipse is almost upon us, and millions will be flocking to the path of totality.

Although there are many great activities to do before, after and during, here are the top things you must not do during those moments of darkness.

1.) Do not waste your time photographing it. Totality is brief, and you won’t experience it again for years.

2.) Do not leave your eclipse glasses on during totality. As soon as you cannot see the Sun through your eclipse glasses, take them off. Totality is here.

3.) Stop viewing the Sun through binoculars/telescopesbeforetotality ends. Looking at direct Sun for even a split second through binoculars/telescopes can blind you forever.

4.) Don’t rely solely on your eyes. The temperature will plummet; nocturnal animals may emerge; street lamps light up; birds fall silent. Take it all in.

5.) Don’t notice or do one thing exclusively. Take in the Sun’s active corona, the entire sky, the stars and planets, and the shadowed, dark Earth before totality ends.
