Are You Ready for Monday’s Solar Eclipse?

Solar Eclipse 2017 Boulder City Nevada

A total solar eclipse is set to darken the U.S. on August 21, 2017.

Millions of people from Oregon to South Carolina will be able to see it, and Boulder City will have 71% totality according to this NASA chart on their site.

A total solar eclipse visible from coast to coast in the US last occurred in 1918 – so this is a BIG DEAL folks!

Lake Mead National Recreation Area is holding a free viewing party at the visitor center from 9 a.m. to noon.

Visitors can safely view the eclipse with rangers at the Lake Mead Visitor Center using a solar telescope and solar glasses.

However, if you haven’t already purchased certified safety glasses for viewing the eclipse, we’ve got a link for now to make your own here!

Be sure you ONLY view the eclipse SAFELY, you can seriously and permanently damage your vision without proper, coverage. The sun can even damage your camera sensor!

For more information about the viewing party at Lake Mead, contact them at 702-293-8990.

The next solar eclipse visible from the continental United States will be April 8, 2024…so don’t miss this one.
