August 2017 Eclipse - Are you Ready?

August 2017 Eclipse - Are you Ready?
The clock is counting down to the 2017 Solar Eclipse. Spartanburg County and parts of surrounding counties will be in the path of totality for this awe-inspiring eclipse of the Sun on August 21, 2017. The rest of the Eastern United States will see only a partial eclipse. This spectacular event will engulf Spartanburg at 2:39PM (EST) in a dark shadow for around two minutes, giving observers a once in a lifetime celestial experience!
A total solar eclipse is when the Sun is covered entirely by the Moon, the sky deeply darkens, the temperature cools, and the Sun’s corona becomes visible. To find out the exact time of the start and end of the eclipse and totality for your specific area, use the following resource:NASA Eclipse 2017
To help you prepare your students (and yourself) for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, Spartanburg County Schools is happy to share these resources. Read More
