Solar Eclipse Event - August 21st!


Join Us For a Solar Eclipse Viewing Event!

On August 21st, a nearly total solar eclipse will be viewable in New York State. The Moravia Central School District would like to invite the public to view the solar eclipse at the high school.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon (in new moon phase) moves across our sky during the day and blocks the Sun. Solar eclipses are rarely seen in the northern hemisphere. When an eclipse occurs only a narrow band of locations is capable of viewing it. The last solar eclipse in NYS was May 10th, 1994. This year’s eclipse will reach its peak at 2:44 pm. Our ability to see it will solely be based on the weather; if it is rainy or too cloudy it may not be as spectacular. We are too far north to see a fully total eclipse.

It is important to know that it is dangerous to look directly at an eclipse because of the way the light rays bend around the moon, which as it blocks some of the Sun. Special view glasses must be worn.

We welcome you to join us at 1:30 pm at the high school. The exact location will be stated with signs on August 21st and will be determined based on weather, and ongoing construction. We encourage you to bring chairs, blankets and snacks, it is a fairly slow process. The eclipse will begin at 1:23 pm, reaching a peak at 2:44 pm, and will end at 4:00 p.m. The school will be ordering a limited number of view glasses; however, they can easily be shared.

If you are interested in attending and would like to reserve viewing glasses, please RSVP to Shannon Dunbar at sdunbar@moraviaschool.org
