Partial Solar Eclipse – Update

Last week we reported on the partial solar eclipse coming up next Thursday afternoon, 10/23, including the viewing party at Sun Meadow.  For solar eclipses, the times and percent of totality are very location specific.  The times we listed were about 20 minutes off for Sun Meadow, so here are correct times, and times for other areas in the region.  Remember, even during a partial eclipse, the sun is far too bright to look at without proper filters.
