IAU Solar Eclipse Education Committee
In order to ensure that astronomers and public health
authorities have access to information related to safe viewing
practices, the International Astronomical Union, the international
organization for professional astronomers, set up a Solar Eclipse
Education Committee. Under Prof. Jay M. Pasachoff of Williams
College, the Committee has assembled information on safe methods
of observing the Sun and solar eclipses, eclipse-related eye injuries,
and samples of educational materials on solar eclipses.
For more information, contact
Prof. Jay M. Pasachoff, Hopkins Observatory, Williams College,
