Get Ready For The Once-in-a-Century Solar Eclipse This Summer

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 21 April 2017
It is not too early to begin preparing for the Great American Solar Eclipse of Aug. 21, 2017 β€” and the sun's position on April 19, 20 and 21, but especially April 20, will offer a perfect dress rehearsal for that historic event. When preparing for the eclipse, an important aspect to consider is the sun's location in the sky for your location. Across the western third of the United States, the eclipse will reach its peak during the late morning hours. Over the nation's midsection, the maximum eclipse will come at midday, and for the eastern third of the country, the time of greatest coverage of the sun by the moon will happen in early to mid-afternoon.
