On Monday, April 8, we will experience a rare near total solar eclipse in our location. This unique event will occur when the moon passes directly between the earth and the sun. At approximately 3:25 p.m., the sun will become almost completely blocked by the moon, causing darkness to fall over our area.

We are extremely fortunate to witness this phenomenon and encourage everyone to take a moment to step outside and safely witness this rare opportunity. However, it is crucial that you do not look directly at the sun, the eclipse or the moon during the event without proper eye protection. Approved eclipse glasses are the only safe way to view the eclipse as looking without them can result in permanent blindness. Sunglasses, Blue Blockers or regular glasses are not sufficient protection. Be sure to acquire approved eclipse glasses from various sources or simply enjoy the midday darkening without looking directly at the sun.

The partial solar eclipse in Orange County, New York will begin at 2:10 p.m on Monday, April 8, reaching its maximum at 3:25 p.m., and ending at 4:36 p.m lasting for a total of 2 hours and 26 minutes. NASA’s website provides additional information on this upcoming event and solar eclipse glasses may still be available online or at local retail stores or libraries where they have been distributed for free
