What is a Solar Eclipse?

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, casting its shadow on our planet and temporarily blocking the Sun's light. This alignment creates a mesmerizing celestial display as the Sun's disc is either partially or completely obscured, depending on the observer's location.

Frequency of Solar Eclipses:

Solar eclipses are relatively rare events. On average, there are about two to five solar eclipses each year, but any given location may only experience a total solar eclipse once every few centuries. The upcoming solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, is especially notable for its path, which will traverse regions of the United States, providing a spectacular view for millions of eager skywatchers.

Protecting Your Eyes:

While witnessing a solar eclipse is a thrilling experience, it's crucial to prioritize your eye safety. Staring directly at the Sun, even during an eclipse, can cause severe eye damage or even permanent blindness. To safely observe the solar eclipse, consider using Best Welds Shaded Glass Filters available at Baker's Gas and Welding.
