  • Partial Solar Eclipse - August 21, 2017

    August 16, 2017
    Next week Monday we'll have the opportunity to see a solar eclipse. For our part of the country we will get to see a partial eclipse where approximately 70% of the sun will be covered by the moon as it passes. Reminder: DO NOT directly look at the eclipse. If you do plan on observing this event please take precautions like wearing ISO 12312-2 eclipse glasses that meet the safety standard. Viewing any amount of direct sunlight can seriously damage (burn) your retina leading to blind spots and permanent vision loss. Check out this video on how to safely enjoy an eclipse!
