On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. This path will stretch from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk.
WHO CAN SEE IT?
IT PASSES THROUGH IDAHO, WYOMING, NEBRASKA, KANSAS, MISSOURI, ILLINOIS, KENTUCKY, TENNESSEE, GEORGIA, NORTH CAROLINA AND SOUTH CAROLINA. IF YOU RESIDE OUTSIDE OF THOSE STATES, YOU WILL STILL GET TO WITNESS A PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE.
WHERE WILL THE TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE BE VISIBLE?
WHEN WILL THE TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OCCUR?

Having escaped the city lights, students are able to see the night sky like never before! Students become fully involved in this ancient science as they use telescopes to view the moon, Saturn’s rings or Jupiter’s moons. They discover constellations and the legends behind them in the same sky that has amazed humankind since the beginning of time.
