How to Organize an Eclipse Party
An eclipse is big news
Any big event tends to send reverberations through the social landscape. The bigger the event the bigger the desire people have to gather together in observance of it. That's one of the reasons why it should come as little surprise that people usually want to watch an eclipse together. Events don't usually come any bigger than the sun itself. Because of that fact, eclipse parties tend to be quite popular. But there's a few big rules which one should adhere to when planning an eclipse party. And of these one of the biggest is that everyone needs to be safe.
Be a good host and provide glasses
Many people might be surprised to find that an eclipse poses any sort of safety concern. After all, while an eclipse is visible from earth the actual event is happening on a far different scale. But that's also why an eclipse can pose such a danger to people. If distant events are powerful enough to be seen on earth than they're powerful enough to have an effect here. And in the case of an eclipse, that manifests as a danger to people's eyes. During an eclipse part of the sun will always still be visible in the sky. It won't hurt to look at, but it's still causing damage when people turn their gaze toward the eclipse. That's why it's so important for anyone planning an eclipse party to purchase and provide Eclipse Glasses for all the guests.
Glasses make the occasion
These glasses are specially made to allow people to safely look at an eclipse. They're made to let people see just how amazing the eclipse is. But at the same time they'll block out the residual sunlight that can make it so dangerous for unshielded eyes.
