How a Solar Eclipse Damaged my Eye | #SolarEclipse1969

Screen Shot 2017-08-19 at 10.50.29 AM

#SolarEclipse2017 #SolarEclipse1969. Be careful while watching 2017 Great American Eclipse. I have a burned area in my left eye thanks to 1969 partial solar eclipse in Venezuela. It almost prevented my admission to the Venezuelan Naval Academy. Damage created a magnify glass effect that did not help me in shooting sports and practices (being left handed it is my dominant eye). My eye has been studied and observed in detail by ophthalmologists to see the permanent damage. They always told me how close I was to be permanent blind.
 
I watched the eclipse directly into the sun for a couple of seconds using my hand as binocular. Yes, I saw it but the consequences were forever. We are owners of our decisions but slaves of the consequences. When I focus on a specific line with my left eye, I can see the blurry spot that I have seen for the last 47 years.
 
If you are planning to have this unique solar eclipse experience, please follow all recommendations about approved glasses. I will use the “box” I should have used in 1969.
 
See the path of 1969 solar eclipse. Venezuela was in the partial solar eclipse area and only a small area of the moon was covering the sun. It was enough to damage my eye.
 
Please read this report about Lou Tomososki who damaged his eyes in 1962 solar eclipse.

#SolarEclipse2017 #SolarEclipse1969. Tenga cuidado al ver 2017 Great American Eclipse. Tengo un área quemada en mi ojo izquierdo gracias al eclipse solar parcial de 1969 en Venezuela. Casi impidió mi ingreso a la Escuela Naval de Venezuela. El daño creó un efecto de lupa que no me ayudó en los deportes de tiro y las prácticas (siendo zurdo es mi ojo dominante). Mi ojo ha sido estudiado y observado en detalle por oftalmólogos para ver el daño permanente y siempre se me dijo lo cerca que habia estado de ser ciego permanente.
 
Miré el eclipse directamente al sol durante un par de segundos usando mi mano como binocular. Sí, lo vi pero las consecuencias fueron para siempre. Somos dueños de nuestras decisiones pero esclavos de las consecuencias. Cuando me concentro en una línea específica con mi ojo izquierdo, puedo ver el punto borroso que he visto en los últimos 47 años.
 
Si planea experimentar este eclipse solar, siga todas las recomendaciones sobre lentes aprobados. Nosotros usaremos la “caja” que debería haber utilizado en 1969.
 
Vea el eclipse solar de 1969. Venezuela estaba en el área de eclipse solar parcial y sólo una pequeña área de la luna estaba cubriendo el sol. Fue suficiente para dañar mi ojo.
 
Por favor, lea este informe acerca de Lou Tomososki que dañó sus ojos en el eclipse solar de 1962.

Hiroshima 70 Years Later: Origami Cranes for Peace.

An interactive presentation including folding of paper origami cranes to remember Hiroshima atomic bombings and to ask for worldwide peace.

No more Hiroshimas! is the expression used to ask for peace and that “never will be any additional uses of nuclear bombs on cities or against people”.

The Hiroshima Peace Program during 23rd world Scout Jamboree is a program created by the Scouts of Hiroshima. A one-day off-site program to Hiroshima provided opportunity for all 34,000 Scouts from 150 countries to learn from the events of 1945. Participants visited Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park including the museum. As Messengers of Peace, World Scouts have the responsibility to share their experiences and continue the Hiroshima Peace Program in their own countries.
