Total Solar Eclipse 2017 – 5 Best Online Resources

Total Solar Eclipse 2017 - 5 Best Online ResourcesA total solar eclipse doesn’t come around very often in North America. The last one was 40 years ago and the one happening this year has been getting a lot of attention.

The eclipse will cast a shadow across 12 states as it moves across the country. If you’re along the path of totality, you’ll see the sky plunge into darkness for up to 3 minutes during the day. If you live where where the total solar eclipse isn’t visible, you’ll still see a beautiful partial eclipse.

You’ll want to make sure you have protective eye wear for safely viewing the eclipse. There are some links in the sidebar to solar shades. It’s a good idea to buy some now before supplies run low and prices go up.
