Mark your calendars because on Aug 21st, 2017 the United States will witness a Solar Eclipse.

Of course, it's not uncommon for a solar eclipse but this one holds significance.

This will be the first total eclipse in 38 years that will be visible from the continental United States. If you miss this one you will have to wait until 2024!

Quick Tip: Never look directly at the sun during an eclipse. To practice safety use binoculars and telescopes.
