August 21, 2017, We are being treated to a rare Total Eclipse. This Solar Eclipse is because the moon is making a transit directly between us and the Sun. Don't miss the 2017 Eclipse. Get your friends & family together. Become a Backyard Astronomer! This would make an excellent keepsake gift for all your friends and loved ones. Remember your eye protection! You will get the unbelievable opportunity to see the Sun's Corona. You will need to keep those eyes safe for the possible next opportunity that comes your way. Get out your telescope, make sure it's culminated properly, and get ready for a night of spectacular sights.
