Look up – but only if you have those glasses on.

Have you heard the news? There’s a solar eclipse happening today.  The solar eclipse will be visible across the continental United States.  In Boston, viewers will see 92.55% of the sun eclipsed by the moon.

See the timeline below:

Partial eclipse start time: 2:16 p.m.
Peak eclipse time: 3:29 p.m.
Partial eclipse ends: 4:39 p.m.

Need last-minute eclipse glass? The library is offering some while supplies last.  You can also purchase them at 7-11, Home Depot and Stop and Shop.

Can’t find the glasses?

Here are some other ways to watch it without the protective glasses!  And NASA is doing a livestream of the eclipse, too!  You can tune in here.
