Get Ready for the Upcoming Solar Eclipse!

By Dr. Lisa Will, Resident Astronomer at the Fleet Science Center.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, San Diegans will be able to observe a partial solar eclipse. It will be visible as a total solar eclipse within a narrow path up to 70 miles wide, traversing the contiguous United States from Oregon to South Carolina. Over half of the population of the United States lives within driving distance (400 miles) of the path of the totality, which makes this an amazing opportunity for eclipse enthusiasts.
