Unless you've been living deep in a cave for the last several weeks, you already know that the solar eclipse is coming on Monday.
Michigan is not in the Path of Totality (isn't that just kind of fun to say?), but we do expect to experience a 90% partial eclipse here in Kalamazoo.
Although I'm not excited enough to head for totality, I am excited about the eclipse. I've collected a bunch of "eclipse information" over the last few days, and I thought I'd share my finds with you.
- If you want to see information about the eclipse for your particular location, click here. You can enter your city, and the site will show you information about the eclipse near you.
- If you want to learn more about the eclipse in an "in-depth" kind of way, the New York Times Science section has a great series of articles. So does the Washington Post.
- If you didn't nab a pair of eclipse glasses, Science Friday has a list of 5 easy ways to safely view the eclipse without them.
- If you want some tips from the pros, Vox has a list for you here.
- If you're wondering what happens to animals and wildlife during an eclipse, you can read about that here.
- If you want some tips about watching the eclipse with kids, Michigan State University Extension put out a nifty little guide just yesterday.
- And, finally, if you want some good old tongue-in-cheek humor about the eclipse, check this out from The Atlantic.
Have a great weekend!
