Watch Out for the Total Solar Eclipse Tonight!

Total Solar Eclipse

We’d like to invite you to learn more about the total solar eclipse taking place today.

On Aug. 21, 2017, people across the United States will see the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight, causing the temperature drop rapidly and revealing massive streamers of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon. On that day, America will fall under the path of a total solar eclipse.

The so-called Great American Total Solar Eclipse will darken skies all the way from Oregon to South Carolina, along a stretch of land about 70 miles wide. People who descend upon this “path of totality” for the big event are in for an unforgettable experience.

You can use this interactive map from NASA to zoom in on the path and find out the exact locations from which it will be visible. Please note that if you are planning to view the solar eclipse, you should get a pair of solar viewing glasses. To protect your eyes from the sun, protection is highly recommended. Looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially covered by the moon, can cause serious eye damage.
