Discover who will enjoy the solar eclipse!
Eclipses are events everyone should experience and enjoy. This year's eclipse, visible as a total solar eclipse to fourteen states stretching from Lincoln Beach, OR to Charleston, SC, means people from all over the US are going to be able to witness the shimmering range of lightness and dark that only occurs during a total eclipse. For those living in the path of totality, prepare to be changed by the sight of the sun slowing dimming to a twilight glow and the fiery corona flickering into sight. And even if you aren’t on the totality path, many states will glory in a partial solar eclipse, as well as the many live-feeds of the eclipse, hosted by NASA, Exploratorium, and many others!
From young to old, eclipse chaser to first-time newbie, an eclipse is a community event that has something for everyone to enjoy. To get the most out of your eclipse experience, you just need a few key safety items, your imagination, and hopefully—a nice sunny day! Head outside with your family and friends, co-workers and colleagues, neighbors, classmates, MeetUp pals... put on your eclipse sunglasses and prepare to be dazzled!
