This year's total eclipse will be a unique experience for many in the United States. It is a rare time that the path of the total eclipse will be over the United States. It's an experience not to miss! In History, people saw total eclipses as a sign of chaos after a king's death. In English, different cultures and peoples consider solar eclipses as part of mythology and stories. Science & Math always come together to calculate future and past eclipses to add to our knowledge.
There are many places in Richland County to get a good view of the total solar eclipse and even more programs building up to the event. See below for some and share in comments if you know of other places!
1. Shadows & Science at Congaree National Park complete with guided hikes. See it surrounded by nature.
2. Richland Library's Summer Learning Challenge includes a bit of eclipse for everyone.
3. South Carolina State Museum...they have a planetarium after all!
4. Your own backyard after making your own.
Protect your eyes during the “before and after” partial eclipse phases, but remove your eclipse glasses when the sky goes dark during totality.
