The last total solar eclipse to be visible from coast to coast was almost 100 years ago, on June 8, 1918! Today, the eclipse will occur exclusively over the continental United States—no other country will see totality—which is why it’s deemed the “Great American Eclipse!” Now isn’t that an out-of-this-world fact?

Remember, looking directly at the sun, before, during, or after the eclipse without protective glasses can still damage your eyes! Check out safety tips from our friends NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

The Great American Solar Eclipse is around the corner! Looking for a fun weekend activity to get prepped? You can harness solar energy with a DIY oven project from NASA. Reward yourself after your hard work with a batch of delicious Solar S’mores. No campfire required!
