    Are these screenshots from something?

    As the date of the August 21 eclipse draws near, keep this important safety information in mind: You MUST use special eclipse safety glasses to view a partial eclipse and the partial phases of a total eclipse. To do otherwise is risking permanent eye damage and even blindness. The ONLY time it’s safe to look at a TOTAL eclipse without proper eye protection is during the very brief period of totality when the Sun is 100 percent blocked by the Moon. If you’re in a location where the eclipse won’t be total, there is NEVER a time when it’s safe to look with unprotected eyes.

      Yes indeed! I have updated my links, do you mind if I include your comment and a link to your site in an updated post reminding people of this important safety information?

        Sure. Here’s a link to a page on eye safety: Feel free to link to any other pages of interest too.
