Safe Viewing: August 21st Solar Eclipse

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will have a solar eclipse. The Moon will cover at least part of the Sun for 2 to 3 hours. Halfway through, anyone within a narrow path from Oregon to South Carolina will experience a brief total eclipse. The Moon will completely block the Sun’s bright face for up to 2 minutes 40 seconds. Day will turn into night, and (weather permitting) one of nature’s most awesome sights will become visible: the Sun’s shimmering outer atmosphere, or corona. 

Because solar eclipses are rare, most people haven't ever considered how to protect their eyes when viewing. Please watch the brief video below to learn more about how to properly prepare for the exciting cosmic happening this summer.
