Today’s the big day: The Great American Solar Eclipse “lands” in Oregon at 10:16 a.m. local time and will makes its way across the country over the course of 1 hour and 32 minutes.
We’ll be celebrating a bunch of ways:
1. A viewing party at our Nashville store (it’s right in the eclipse’s path of totality, if you happen to be around…)
2. A good old-fashioned countdown clock on our site
3. Astrophotography. It’s a thing! We’ll be sharing professional photographs of the eclipse on Instagram and Facebook, since phone cameras aren’t so great at capturing celestial spectacles like these. Save and re-share as you please.
Finally, just a friendly reminder that you should never look directly at the sun—even with sunglasses, and even during an eclipse (unless you have specially designed viewing glasses).
Stay safe and have fun, solar eclipse seers!
