In case you haven’t heard, there will be a solar eclipse on Monday, August 21 that will be seen in Secaucus.
Between 1:20 and 4:00 pm, the moon will move in front of the sun and commence the first solar eclipse visible in the United States in 38 years. Everyone in North America will see at least a partial blocking of the sun, with New Jersey seeing around 80 percent blockage.
Looking into the sun during an eclipse is dangerous, of course, and should only be done using special glasses. Unfortunately, the Secaucus Library has run out of eclipse glasses, but you can purchase glasses on Amazon or in local stores. For more safety information about viewing the eclipse, check the NASA website.
