Annular Solar Eclipse : 20/21 May 2012
What You Will See
NASA Annular Solar Eclipse Information.
An Annular Eclipse is visible beginning in southern China at 22:06 UT and continues along the southern coast of Japan. Tokyo lies 10 kilometres north of the central line, the annular phase at Tokyo will last 5 minutes beginning at 22:32 UT (on May 21 local time).
After crossing the Pacific Ocean the shadow reaches land again along the coastlines of southern Oregon and northern California at 01:23 UT (May 20 local time). Redding, CA lies 30 kilometres south of the central line. Nevertheless, it still experiences an annular phase lasting 4 1/2 minutes beginning at 01:26 UT. Central Nevada, southern Utah, and northern Arizona are all within the annular path. By the time the antumbra reaches Albuquerque, NM (01:34 UT), the central duration is still 4 1/2 minutes, but the Sun's altitude has dropped to 5°. As its leading edge reaches the Texas Panhandle, the shadow is now an elongated ellipse extending all the way to Nevada. Seconds later, the antumbra begins its rise back into space above western Texas as the track and the annular eclipse end.
A partial eclipse will be visible from a much larger region covering East Asia, North Pacific, USA, Mexico, Canada and Greenland.

The Transit of Venus : 5/6 June 2012
What You Will See
NASA Venus Transit Information.
The Venus transit will be visible from the western Pacific, eastern Asia and eastern Australia.
Most of North and Central America, and northern South America will witness the beginning of the transit (on June 5) but the Sun will set before the event ends. Similarly, observers in Europe, western and central Asia, eastern Africa and western Australia will see the end of the event
(on June 6) since the transit will already be in progress at sunrise from those locations.

Total Solar Eclipse : 13 November 2012 (14 November local Cairns, Australia time)
What You Will See
NASA Total Solar Eclipse Information.
A Total Solar Eclipse starts at dawn in the very north of Australia, passing over Port Douglass and Cairns the shadow narrowly misses Norfolk Island and tracks across the Pacific without making landfall again.
A partial eclipse will be visible from a much larger region covering Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific.

Manufacturers safety endorsement
Our safe solar eclipse viewing glasses have received an independent safety endorsement from the foremost authority on eye safety during solar eclipses. Dr. Ralph Chou, professor of optometry at University of Waterloo, developed the eye safety standards for viewing solar eclipses.

"SolarSkreen has had an excellent reputation for more than 25 years as a safe filter material for observing the sun and solar eclipses. I recommend it for both beginning and experienced solar observers." Dr. Ralph Chou.

WARNING : Never observe the Sun with the naked eye or a telescope, binoculars, camera or other optical device. Doing so will seriously damage your eye sight and may lead to permanent blindness. Both the eye and artificial optical devices concentrate the extremely strong ultraviolet light from the Sun onto the retina. This can permanently destroy the retina's ability to detect light. To safely observe a solar eclipse you must use CE approved safety solar eclipse glasses such as those on sale here or use indirect methods such as pin hole projection onto a suitable surface.
Please note these solar eclipse glasses are not suitable for use with optical devices such as telescopes, binoculars or cameras, you need stronger and larger solar eclipse filters than these to protect you from the magnified sun light when using optical devices.
You will put your eye sight at risk by only wearing regular sunglasses or shades to directly view the sun.
