  • Eyes to the sky: Solar eclipse Aug. 21

    On Aug. 21, the first total solar eclipse in 38 years will cross over the continental United States. The 70-mile-wide shadow created by the moon will cross from Oregon to South Carolina. Those in that path will be able to see a total eclipse of the sun for 2 minutes. Although Massachusetts is not in this shadow, people will still see a partial eclipse that will partially block the sun and change the ambient light for a few minutes.

  • Sun safety during the eclipse

    Later this month, eyes will turn to the sky to witness a once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse. While this natural phenomenon may be a sight to behold – protecting your sight while doing so is key.
