Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end.  For the 2017 eclipse, the longest period when the moon completely blocks the sun from any given location along the path is expected to be about two minutes and 40 seconds.  The last time the United States experienced a total eclipse was in 1979.
