Get ready for the Great American Solar Eclipse

On Monday, August 21, the sun will disappear behind the moon, creating a 70-mile-wide shadow across North America stretching from Oregon to South Carolina. Skies will darken, temperatures will drop and millions of people will be treated to a rare and magical astronomical event.

Charlotte is located about 80 miles outside the path of totality, but we’ll still see a 90 percent eclipse. From start to finish, the eclipse will take about three hours, with the peak for Charlotte taking place at 2:40 p.m. and lasting around 2 ½ minutes.

***During these three hours, NEVER look directly at the sun without proper eyewear. Take special care in purchasing eclipse glasses and follow the guidance provided by NASA (https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/Solar_Eclipse_Safety_RTFv14.pdf) The glasses you purchase should be marked ISO 12312-2 (sometimes written as ISO 12312-2:2015). Filters that are ISO 12312-2 certified reduce visible sunlight and block solar UV and IR radiation.***

Bring your solar eclipse glasses to the Govporch to watch this historic event. We will have an ice cream truck and Italian Ice here from 1pm to 3pm.
