It’s a Solar Eclipse (don’t look)!

If you’re anything like our family, you’re moving back into school at a snail’s pace and you’ve realized that you don’t want to miss this rare event called the Solar Eclipse. It’s scheduled to happen on Monday, August 21, 2017, and a large portion of the U.S. will be in the 75-mile total eclipse viewing area.

Here are some amazing facts to share with your family:

· The last time a total eclipse was seen over the United States was in 1918 and the path was almost identical to the path of 2017.

· Although only a band of the United States will be in the total eclipse viewing area, a partial eclipse will be viewable by the entire nation.

· For a brief 2 ½ minutes, the sun will be in total eclipse

· The shadow of our moon will be traveling at nearly 2,240 mph

Plan a Total Eclipse Viewing Party:

· CAUTION: Don’t look directly at the sun. It will damage your eyes.

· Eclipse events across America can be found on this map.
