Staying Put for the Eclipse?

If you aren’t one of the bajillion people flocking to Oregon next week for the solar eclipse there’s some good news: while we won’t be in the path of totality (see a total eclipse), as long as skies are clear, Californians will be able to see a partial eclipse.

Now, don’t worry if you don’t have any big plans. You really only need three things to make this an experience you’ll remember..

Glasses

Remember how your mom told you not to stare at the sun? This is also true during the eclipse. It may seem safe since the moon is covering up the sun, but just don’t do it, ok? Unfortunately, Amazon has been dealing with fakes, so check out this list from the American Astronomical Society to find an approved retailer.

No time to have it shipped? Get crafty! Finish off that box of cereal and make an eclipse viewer.

Adventurous Spirit

As long as the sky is clear, we should be able to see a partial solar eclipse (see how much you’ll get to see by entering your zip code here). But if the morning fog is taking its time burning off, you might have to drive out to clearer pastures!

Keep an eye on the weather in your area and have a plan, hiking up the highest peak around you? Driving out to the beach? No matter what you do, keep in mind many people will have their eyes on the sky--so stay safe out there!

Your Favorite Strain

Grab your favorite strain and take a moment to think about this moment in earth’s history. There’s a total eclipse almost every year on earth. But for single locations, only once in 360 years. Even though we won’t be in the path of totality, appreciate the dimming light, feel the power around you as the sun and moon align. Take a second to appreciate the moment you’re sharing with millions of people (even if no one else is around you).

If the skies end up being too cloudy or you just aren’t able to take a break from work to go look outside, don’t worry--one will be passing over California in 2045… plenty of time to plan your PTO and to get those DIY viewers ready!
