The Great American Total Solar Eclipse August 21st

Everything You Need to Know

August 11, 2017

The Great American Total Solar Eclipse is coming on August 21, 2017...the first time in nearly 100 years. The "path of totality", where the sky will completely darken, spans from Oregon to South Carolina and will be 70 miles wide, passing through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. People are traveling from near and far to get a glimpse of this once in a lifetime event with hotels, airbnb's, and spare bedrooms booking up fast.  This is an event not to miss.

REMEMBER: Looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially covered by the moon, can cause serious eye damage or blindness. NEVER look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection. Many libraries and science centers will have free protective glasses to wear or buy your own, they're affordable via Amazon: Certified Solar Eclipse Glasses
