Eclipse much?

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. The lunar shadow first hits the U.S. on the west coast (at the Oregon coast) just about 9AM (PDT).  NASA published a *great* map showing the track and the percent of the sun’s area covered by the moon from the perspective at various geographies.nasaaugust1totalsolareclipse

For awesome resources, check the NASA Eclipse 2017 resource site.

Remember: The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses,” so be careful. Here are some excellent resources on how to safely look at an eclipse.
