Great American Eclipse – Safety Tips While On The Road

On August 21, 2017, millions of people across the United States will see nature’s most wondrous spectacle — a total eclipse of the Sun. It is a scene of unimaginable beauty; the Moon completely blocks the Sun, daytime becomes a deep twilight, and the Sun’s corona shimmers in the darkened sky. This is your guide to understand, prepare for, and view this beautiful celestial event.

It’s best to know what time the event will occur in each time zone so you can be prepared. If you plan to view the eclipse you must exit the highway to safely park. During the eclipse the sky will become noticeable darker and this will occur rapidly.

This will inevitably result in people pulling off to the side of the road to view the eclipse. Please be aware of this if you do not plan to safely exit the highway.

While an amazing spectacle, there are things to keep in mind in order to be safe. If you wish to know more about the eclipse and how to plan for it please visit these sites. You will find safety tips, when the eclipse will reach totality and more:
