On Monday, Aug. 21, there will be a total solar eclipse. For a brief time, the moon will pass between Earth and the sun completely obscuring the sun’s rays and bringing temporary darkness to the day! In Grand Isle, we won’t have 100 percent coverage of the sun, but it should still be mostly hidden and interesting to see.
Because you should never, ever, ever look directly at the sun, even if it is mostly hidden, you’ll need special eclipse viewing glasses to witness this once and a lifetime event.
All the glasses have been claimed!!
***Live video streams of the August 21 total solar eclipse, from NASA Television and locations across the country, will be available on this page ….https://www.nasa.gov/eclipselive ***
