I know Mama always warned us never to look directly at the sun. The lenses of our eyes concentrate sunlight on our retinas, and that can cause burns and permanent vision loss. But with proper protective gear, astronomers can give us a safe and fascinating view of the sun. From 9 to 11 this morning, the Howard Astronomical League will hold a "solar viewing event," featuring an array of sun-safe equipment. It's set for the Central Library, 10375 Little Patuxent Parkway, in Columbia. The weather looks perfect.
