On April 8, 2024, the Great North American Eclipse will be visible across North America. During this total eclipse, the moon will pass in front of the sun, causing the sun to be blocked entirely. This will then create a period of total darkness.


Viewing the Eclipse Safely

To observe the eclipse at your school, necessary precautions must be taken to ensure students’ eyesight is not damaged during the experience. Looking directly at the sun while viewing an eclipse can cause permanent eye damage including retinal burns and blindness, so it is crucial to use proper eye protection.
