This August, America will fall under the path of totality for a solar eclipse which means a section of the United States from Oregon to South Carolina will witness a total solar eclipse. We want you to be prepared! Come to our Solar Summer Series of events to discover solar eclipses and how to watch them.
A total solar eclipse happens almost every other year, but a very small percentage of the world's population has ever witnessed one. That's because specific locations are in the path of totality only about every 400 years due to the way the Earth and moon move. That makes the eclipse this August a big deal for us.
