[ARCHIVED] Village Residents urged to use caution when viewing the Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21st
On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.
Here in Palm Springs, the eclipse will begin shortly after 1:15 p.m. and last approximately 3 hours. The peak of the eclipse will occur at approximately 2:45 p.m. here in South Florida. We hope that you witness this rare phenomenon safely so that you do not damage your eyesight in the process. Please follow the link below for tips on how to view the eclipse in the safest possible manner.
