A Total Solar Eclipse

August 07, 2017

On Monday, August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse will occur across North America along the moon's path of totality from Oregon, crossing the U.S., to Charleston, South Carolina. This rare, wondrous natural phenomenon was viewable from the U.S. last in 1979. This should be one of the moments of a lifetime.

If you have the opportunity to take the day off, grab the kids and get to the closest area within the path of totality. Please visit WWW.NASA.GOV, to find out more about the band of the U.S. where you will see the sun totally obscured by the moon. A shout out to all of our friends from the Chicago area, the path of totality will cross the southern part of Illinois with the longest duration!

Make sure you get the special glasses, which look like 3D glasses you get at the movies, to watch the eclipse and be prepared with food, water, and other supplies. They say once the moon totally eclipses the sun, the temperature may drop precipitously, so bring a jacket or sweatshirt. Be prepared for crowds and traffic, but it should be worth it.

They say that to experience a total solar eclipse is an opportunity of a lifetime and puts everything into perspective and literally, may even change your world view.

So if you can, get ready, start planning the trip and make the trek to the band of totality to see this wondrous, natural phenomenon before your very eyes!
