To close out a year of 20/20 Vision, we’ve got some glasses to mark a very special occasion! These peeper protectors were deployed this afternoon at 15:00 MHQ. Do you enjoy watching eclipses?
Only twelve Eclipse Glasses will be deployed, and they will bounce to virtuals every 12 hours or when captured. These will be attracted to Virtual Magnets though so be sure to stock up!
- Cap: 200 points
- CapOn (Host): 100 points
Capturing the Eclipse Glasses will add this eye-catching Solar Sight badge to your collection! Also, as of July we’ve released the details on the overall capture line — the post is HERE if you missed it!
According to NASA, today’s eclipse will only be completely visible from Chile and Argentina — any Munzee players lucky enough to be located there? If so, here are their safety guidelines on viewing eclipses. The main point is making sure to wear protective Eclipse Glasses at all times — the only point when it is safe to view the eclipse without glasses is when the moon is completely covering the sun and not even the tiniest sliver of direct sunlight is reaching you. This happens for a very short time — just a few minutes — so unless you have absolutely perfect timing and know exactly when to put your Eclipse Glasses back on, it’s better to not put your eyes at risk and keep them on the entire time you’ll be viewing.
If you’re not located in Chile or Argentina but are still interested in having an eclipse-viewing experience, try to find a livestream you can watch! While it’s not quite like watching it up in the sky, the upside is you don’t have to worry about protecting your eyes — though you may still want to read up on the safety guidelines above, so that you are prepared for the next occurence near you!
You’ll be able to capture the 20/20 Vision specials on other players’ munzees as well as your own for the remainder of the year! As a reminder, all 20/20 Vision specials will leave the map on 12/31/2020 at 23:59 MHQ. These are the last 20/20 Vision specials of the year, so make sure to be on the lookout if you’re a fan! We hope you look forward to what we have in store for next year!
