PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE

VINCENTIANS TO EXPERIENCE PARTIAL ECLIPSE ON MONDAY AUGUST 21st

Vincentians will be able to view a partial eclipse of the sun today Monday August 21st.

The eclipse will begin across the sky from about 2:31PM, peaking at 3:48PM and ending at 5:55PM.

At its peak, Vincentians will see the moon covering 70% of the sun. Experts have however warned persons not to look at the eclipse with your naked eye as it could result in permanent damage to the eyes. You will require special eclipse glasses or it can be viewed by projecting it through a pin-hole in a sheet of paper or cardboard onto another surface.

The path of the total solar eclipse will cross the entire United States.

The last time vincentians were treated to a solar eclipse of this magnitude, was in 1998.
