Between 2 and 3 PM, Monday, August 21, a near total eclipse will occur in central Florida. It is very important that you keep pets indoors during this time. If they stare toward the sun, they will still likely incur injury to their eyes, even during the peak of the eclipse.
And people too–use caution! Only look at the sun with genuine protective glasses designed for that purpose. BEWARE–there are many fake sunglasses being peddled, and they WILL NOT provide sufficient protection.
