Ohio’s Local Science Teachers Share Insights on Eclipse

Total Solar Eclipse Safety Tips: Protecting Your Eyes and Enjoying the Experience Responsibly

As the total solar eclipse draws near, we caught up with local educators to get their thoughts on this rare event. Mr. Kyle Rose, a Science Instructor at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, explained that during a total solar eclipse, the moon passes between the sun and the Earth, causing the sun to be completely covered by the moon. This creates a shadow on Earth, resulting in darkness for a short period of time.

Mrs. Leslie Bradley, a Biology Teacher at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, emphasized the importance of not looking directly at the eclipse without proper protection. She explained that staring at the sun can cause damage to the retina at the back of the eye, which is responsible for sending signals to the brain for visual interpretation. Since the total eclipse involves the sun, it is crucial to wear protective glasses to avoid any harm to your eyes.

As you prepare to witness this once-in-a-lifetime experience, it is essential to keep safety in mind while also savoring every moment of it. Make sure you have protective eyewear and follow all safety guidelines before experiencing this incredible event. Enjoy responsibly!
