Total/Partial Eclipse of the Sun

The eclipse is August 21, 2017 (see below for times).

A solar eclipse in which the moon passes between the sun and us.  Those of us in California will see a partial eclipse.  If you wish to see a total eclipse, head on up to Salem, Oregon.

Never look directly at the sun without appropriate eye protection. One way to safely view an eclipse of the sun including direct viewing is with eclipse glasses. Eclipse glasses are available from Amazon from about $8.00 to $18.00; also from Walmart online.
