Solar Eclipse

 

Solar Eclipse 2017

 

On August 21st 2017 there will be a total solar eclipse that will be seen from Oregon to South Carolina. In Salt lake City, we will see 91% of totality. The eclipse will start to be seen around 10:13 am MST with 91% totality being reached at 11:33 am MST. Everyone viewing the eclipse in Utah should wear eye protection because totality will never be reached.

 

Here are some resources for more information or websites to purchase eclipse glasses.
