Discussion time: Eclipse plans

total solar eclipse

With a total solar eclipse just over 2 months away, I figure it’s time to take stock. Are you planning to attend a viewing party? Stay home and watch in your backyard? Or travel to see it?

We’ve been working on a guide to “everything you need to know” about this upcoming celestial event on April 8. Check it out and let me know what you think. What else should we add to it? We’re in the process of putting together a list of events around the region. Let us know what’s being planned in your Adirondack community!

Drop your eclipse plans and thoughts in the comments section!
