Solar Eclipse in the U.S.

On Monday, August 21 a solar eclipse will be visible in the entire United States, including Alaska and Hawaii.
The total eclipse, where the sun is totally blocked out by the moon, will be visible within a 70 mile wide swath beginning in Oregon and cutting across the mid-section of the country to South Carolina.  Here in Adrian, we should expect to see about 83% of the sun eclipsed.

To learn more about the eclipse, including exactly how much of the eclipse is viewable in any part of the country, check out this  interactive Solar Eclipse map by Vox Media.

Of course NASA has lot of great information too. Check out their dedicated "Eclipse 2017" website to find information on the science of the eclipse, safe viewing tips and even an Eclipse Party Kit.


Come to our Eclipse program on Monday, August 14 at 6:30 with Dr. Sarah Hansen from Adrian College. Dr. Hansen will explain the science of the eclipse. Free solar eclipse glasses will be available to take home.
