The Carolinas will experience an 80 to 90% visibility of the upcoming partial eclipse, offering a nice view for many in the region.

The eclipse is set to occur Monday afternoon, with peak visibility around 3:15 p.m.

Safety during the celestial event is crucial, and nurse practitioner Erin Bolin emphasizes the importance of protecting your eyes while watching the eclipse, whether it’s partial or full.

The best method is to use specifically designed solar view glasses or filters. A specific ISO standard called ISO 12312-2 designates eyewear as safe for looking at the sun. Solar glasses and viewers with this international safety standard are the safest way to view the sun.

Stay safe and enjoy the celestial show in the Carolinas!
