This coming Monday the US will experience a unique phenomenon – a total solar eclipse. While here in Pennsylvania we will only see a partial eclipse, it is still a pretty awesome event that only happens every so many decades.

How do you view the eclipse?

Anyone wishing to look at the solar eclipse should go to NASA’s very helpful website and read carefully. Looking directly at the sun even during an eclipse without proper eye protection can lead to permanent vision loss which will not be apparent right away.
