Solar Eclipse Viewing August 21, 2017

Save the date for this, you don’t want to miss it!

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. This is the first time a total solar eclipse will cross coast-to-coast since 1918!
