August 1, 2017, 7:00 p.m. (Tuesday) The Eclipse is coming! There will be a total solar eclipse in North America on August 21, 2017. It will be visible in a path stretching from Oregon to South Carolina (we will not be able to view the total eclipse in RI). It is the first total solar eclipse visible in the U. S. since 1918. Since the only land locations where the eclipse will be visible are in the U. S., it is being called the “Great American Total Solar Eclipse”. Learn all about it on August 1 with Francine Jackson, astronomer and BVHS member.
