"In addition to addressing safety concerns associated with the eclipse, the delay will provide more time for us to make this a special educational event for our students, allowing us to organize a variety of safe activities related to this meteorological phenomenon". However, it's not advisable to test them during the eclipse, as you risk permanent damage to your eyes. The guide book contains 50 pages of solar eclipse science, maps, auto games, puzzles, crosswords, word searches, mad libs, coloring pages, story starters, and more.

In conjunction, the Scotch Plains Public Library will host a family friendly Solar Eclipse Celebration beginning at 11:00 a.m. It may be thought that the Moon is completely black because of the Earth's shadow, but the reddish-brown colour is because of the fact that some of the Sun's light bends through the Earth's atmosphere and reflects off the moon.

Blair says that any given point on the planet experiences a total solar eclipse just once every 375 years, so for many people the chance to view this eclipse will literally be a once-in-a-lifetime event. For a few minutes on August 21 from OR through SC, the sky will go dark, the stars will come out and temperatures will drop in the middle of the day for people in the path of totality.

What we're hoping for is a late start to afternoon storms or, best case scenario, no rain at all.

Usually around 3 p.m., there's quite a bit of cloud cover and rain around.

Mark your calendar! We've got a solar eclipse on August 21.
