Preparation...

Submitted by theman on Sat, 08/19/2017 - 22:12

We are all getting prepared — and very excited — for Monday's Complete Solar Eclipse!

First and most important point: you absolutely need to protect your eyes! This doesn't mean that you have to spend a fortune: the American Astronomical Society has assembled a complete list of resources: https://eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters.

If you can't watch it first-hand, many PBS stations will be broadcasting an

Eclipse Day Live Broadcast
Eclipse Day Live Broadcast!

This is a special event, so be sure and take the time to catch at least a glimpse...
