2017 Solar Eclipse

The next solar eclipse will take place on August 21st, 2017. It will be the first eclipse to cross the US in 99 years! 99 years may not be a long time in geological terms but just short of a century is more than a lifetime for most of us.

The total eclipse—where the moon is completely blocking the sun—will be visible from the US starting in Oregon on a nearly linear path ending in South Carolina. Most states will be able to see a partial eclipse.

Having the correct eyewear to view the eclipse safely is extremely important. NAGT will be handing out eclipse glasses at the upcoming GSA meeting in Denver. Stop by the NAGT booth (#457) to pick up a pair and learn about recent NAGT activities, sponsored projects, and to connect with colleagues and staff working the booth.
