Total Solar Eclipse August 21

Eclipse Path
Totality

Monday, August 21, 2017 where will you be?  Standing in the Moon’s shadow?  Those individuals traveling to where the Moon’s shadow will sweep across the United States will be treated to a total solar eclipse.  Although total solar eclipses are not rare, traveling to a location where they occur can be a challenge.  This makes the 2017 Eclipse across the US exciting for it is relatively easy travel somewhere to see it.  The last total solar eclipse to trek across the US was on June 8,1918.

If you are not traveling to a totality location, the Inland Empire can expect to see a partial solar eclipse with the moon approximately covering 2/3 of the sun.  Solar glasses will be needed to see the partial eclipse or a pinhole viewer can be used safely.
