Title
Solar Eclipse Viewing
Description

Watch the moon’s shadow darken the sun during the solar eclipse. Limited number of solar glasses will be provided. Warning: Never look directly at the sun without proper eye protection. Cherry Ridge.

The last total solar eclipse in the United States was in 1979. What makes this solar eclipse extra special, is it's the first time a total solar eclipse pathway lies completely inside the United States since 1776.

A narrow band of the United States (Oregon to South Carolina) will see 100% coverage of the sun. Here in central Ohio, we will observe 86% coverage.

Solar Eclipse viewing Safety:
Never look directly at the sun without proper eye protection; serious and permanent eye damage can occur. Metro Parks will be providing special solar glasses for visitors to look at the sun. Some parks will also have solar telescopes to see the sun in more detail.

Solar Eclipse time line:
The moon’s shadow will begin to fall across the sun at 1:04pm. The full eclipse (maximum coverage) will occur at 230pm. The eclipse will end by 352pm.
