"Don't stare at the sun...you'll go blind!"

You may remember hearing this as a child, and there actually is some truth to it! Staring at the sun for an extended period of time may cause irreversible damage to the center of the retina, causing a central blind spot. This is called solar retinopathy. I know you are all as happy as I am about the sun finally showing its face here in Colorado, but try not to stare at it for too long! :)
