SOLAR ECLIPSE--August 21st
The United States will experience a solar eclipse on August 21st. The last total eclipse seen from coast to coast was in 1918. Unfortunately, in New Jersey we will not see the total eclipse but we will see about 75% of the Sun blocked by the Moon. The eclipse will begin about 1:22 pm (EDT) and end at 4:00 pm. The maximum coverage will be at 2:44 pm. Please visit the NASA Eclipse website using the link below.
DO NOT LOOK AT THE ECLIPSE WITHOUT SPECIAL ECLIPSE GLASSES. To date four manufacturers have certified that their eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers meet the ISO 12312-2 international standard for such products: Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical, and TSE 17 (from NASA website). You can order glasses online, they are less than $5 a pair.
