Solar Eclipse Viewing Safety

A partial solar eclipse will occur on August 21, between 8:21 and 10:13 am. As viewed from Alaska, about half the sun will be covered at the eclipse maximum. It is not safe to look directly at the sun to view the eclipse. To view the eclipse safely, use pinhole projection: with your back to the sun, focus the sun's rays through a pinhole punched in a paper, onto another paper or flat surface. A pinhole camera can also be created with one's own fingers by interlocking them into a mesh pattern and focusing the sun's rays through the gaps between fingers. For further details on how to safely view the eclipse, see this fact sheet from NASA.

STUDENT SAFETY

As you meet with your sponsors and begin gearing up for the upcoming school year, we would like to take a moment to mention the importance of vetting service providers (for quality and safety) when contracting with them for instructional services.


We highly encourage you have conversations with your students regarding their personal safety in all types of situations. Below are a few resources that might help guide conversations about digital citizenship, internet, and social media safety.
