Location of the Total Solar Eclipse

By Wil Overgaard

People may want to step outside and check the location of the sun on Friday, April 21st – they’ll have the same view of the location of the total solar eclipse on August 21st. The time for the eclipse will be 11:25 am

The summer solstice (longest day of the year) will be June 21st. The sun will pass through the same approximate location in the sky on April 21st as it ascends to the solstice (right ascension) as it will on August 21st as it descends from the solstice (declination). 

You should never look directly at the sun. You will be able to see the “total eclipse” without protection for 2 minutes and 5 seconds on August 21st, but you must have special eyeglasses to view the “partial eclipse” before and after totality. Each school is providing special edition “Weiser Eclipse” glasses to its students free (thanks to a generous donation from Sherry Young and Post Drilling). Parents and community members can purchase theirs from any of the schools, also Weiser Chamber of Commerce and Weiser Hospital Foundation also have glasses.
