The Great American Total Eclipse will occur on Monday August 21, 2017 with 88% totality in our area. Seeing a total solar eclipse is a once in a lifetime experience! The entire United States will witness at least a partial eclipse. Areas along the path of totality will be the best place to view. On this day the sun will become more and more obscured by the moon. You will notice the temperature drop, shadows on the ground will appear sharper with crescent shapes, and the sky will become a dull shade of blue.
The total solar eclipse will be an awesome view, but can be dangerous to your eyes. You must use eye protection or pin-hole viewers. Staring at the sun during the eclipse can burn your retina.
