SOLAR ECLIPSE MONDAY.  TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO VIEW SAFELY

On Monday, August 21st, people across the country will be able to see a partial or total solar eclipse.  In Houston, we can expect to see a partial eclipse between about 12:00pm (noon) to 3:00pm.

Be aware of these safety tips as you make your eclipse plans:
  • Eclipse Glasses - Staring directly at the sun can be dangerous to your eyes. The American Astronomical Society (AAS) recommends that you use specialized solar eclipse glasses and devices from reputable dealers to view it.
  • Traffic and Driver Safety - While the eclipse will be exciting, TxDOT is reminding residents that it is not only dangerous, but illegal to stop on the side of highways to view it.  If you plan to view the eclipse, pull completely off the roadway, into a parking lot or park, and use the proper safety equipment.
The City of Houston has assembled tips and links from NASA, AAS and other agencies and has made them available at houstonemergency.org/eclipse2017.

We hope you enjoy this historic event safely!
