On Monday, August 21st we will experience a solar eclipse. This is when the moon covers the sun. In our area we will experience over a 90% coverage of the sun. While this is an exciting event, it is also a time to be cautious.
The eclipse will begin a little after 9:00am and peak at 10:23am. It will end at approximately 11:45am. During the eclipse, looking directly at the sun can be dangerous without proper precautions such as wearing ISO certified eclipse glasses.
Please be extra cautious during this time and please be sure to educate those around you in order to avoid potential eye damage.
Athletic Director, Matt Tait will be sending out a message to coaches regarding student athletes who will be on campus during the time of the eclipse.
Below are some resources to help plan for safe viewing:
