    Map shows path of totality

    This map shows the PATH OF TOTALITY where the Sun will be completely blocked out by the Moon.  

    Everywhere else in North America, including the Methacton area, will have a PARTIAL ECLIPSE.  A partial eclipse is where then moon blocks a part of the Sun but not the entire surface.  Here at Methacton the sun will be about 85% covered by the Moon.  You will need SOLAR ECLIPSE glasses to view this. NEVER LOOK AT THE SUN WITH OUT PROPER EYE PROTECTION.  Proper protection means ISO certified filters from a reputable manufacturer and free from and pin holes.  Welder's glass may be used but it must be #14 or darker.
