With the total solar eclipse coming up in just a few days, experts are warning people that this is a serious natural phenomenon. They stress that in order to view the eclipse, you must to wear special glasses so you won't go blind.
Many people aren't taking this seriously but 70-year-old Lou Tomososki knows the damage that the sun can do to your eyes if they are exposed to the eclipse. Lou was only a teenager when he looked at the sun directly during an eclipse. He only looked for about 20 seconds but the damage to his eye is still there all these years later. Even though it was only a brief glimpse it resulted in a pea-sized spot in his right eye.
Now that another solar eclipse is about to take place, Lou wants to warn others about these dangers and to ensure that no one else damages their eyes like he did. Please view the eclipse with caution using only special eclipse glasses. God is giving us this beautiful event for us to enjoy the beauty of His creation, so be safe!
Mike already has an impressive portfolio of photographs capturing God’s beautiful creations. Here are just a few examples of his work.
Wow, wow and wow -- right? Needless to say, THIS is the guy you want photographing the first supermoon eclipse to occur since 1982!
Mike spent 5 hours on a rooftop in Dallas, snapping photos of the moon every 10 minutes. While there were plenty of photos of the moon immediately following the total eclipse, Mike’s took a bit longer. But that’s because he was working to combine numerous photos he’d captured into one to show all of the eclipse phases at once. And the results are absolutely stunning and well worth the wait!
And with half a million likes, over 600,000 shares and 24,000 comments on Facebook, it looks like the Internet agrees!
Doesn’t the beauty and complexity of God’s creation blow you away? And to think, the same Almighty hand that painted the skies and molded the land, formed you and I. The same Creator who knows each star in the sky, calls us by name.
