Experience The Upcoming Solar Eclipse In New Jersey!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Properties

The first coast-to-coast eclipse to hit the United States in 99 years will take place on Monday, August 21st. Those who are in the line of totality will be lucky enough to experience a total solar eclipse and observers outside the path will experience a partial eclipse. This celestial event occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours.  

 

Here in New Jersey, we will experience the moon blocking about 75% of the sun. We won't experience a total eclipse, but we will see a partial eclipse. The most important thing to remember about the upcoming eclipse is that it is unsafe to look directly at the eclipse without proper eye protection. If you choose to buy protective eyewear do so only from a reputable supplier.

 

Here is where you can experience the eclipse in New Jersey.

 

The Liberty Science Center

 

Open to the general public from 10:00-5:00 pm head to the Liberty Science Center and experience a day full of fun. Learn why eclipses happen and how to view them safely. Watch the eclipse with the museums 8-inch telescopes and Sunspotters. There will also be a live feed from other observatories for viewing.  Live demonstrations and crafts for the kids are sure to make this event a day to remember.

I hope the emergency rooms don't fill up with people injuring their eyesight.  It's so tempting.
