This past Monday the contiguous United States experienced its first total eclipse of the sun since 1979. While some lucky American viewers were in the path of totality, here in New York City it was sadly only a partial eclipse with about seventy percent coverage of the sun. But that didn’t stop Liz and Carolyn from taking a good hard look! Since protecting your eyesight is crucial during a solar eclipse, as we hear staring directly at the sun’s rays can be damaging to your vision (Protima didn’t believe me when I told her this), Liz and Carolyn were prepared! Here they are wearing their eclipse glasses, trying to get a good look from our lunch room. Don’t worry, eventually they shared their glasses and let everyone else look too!
