2017 Solar Eclipse – August 21st

On Monday, August 21st, 2017, all of North America will experience an eclipse of the sun. According to NASA, anyone within the “path of totality” will be able to see a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun will stretch from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Central Florida is outside this path, but will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk. The partial solar eclipse will begin at 1:26 p.m. and last until 4:20 p.m. with a maximum coverage being reached at 2:51 p.m.

Looking directly at the sun when it is partially covered by the moon can cause serious eye damage or blindness. It is dangerous to look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection.

Tips and instructions on safety during the eclipse can also be located in the link below.
