Protect Your Eyes During the Annular Eclipse
Texas Tech Physicians Expert Offers Tips on Enjoying the Celestial Event
All eyes will be on the path of the upcoming annular eclipse Oct. 14, but a Texas Tech Physicians expert advises the public to take precautions.
An annular eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly in front of the sun, but the moon is too small to completely obscure the sun, leaving a ring of sunlight visible. During an annular eclipse, the sun is still very bright and that radiation can cause permanent damage to reading and driving vision.
