The Solar Eclipse has been talked about for weeks and it’s finally happening today! We will be treated to one of Earth’s greatest wonders. The last time a Solar Eclipse occurred was in 1979.

If you’re not able to see it in person there are plenty of websites that will have live webcasts to follow the events.

Here are a couple:

Both sites will provide live updates as the Solar Eclipse begins in Oregon 12:15pm EST and Ends in Charleston, South Carolina 4:05pm EST. 

If you’re going to see the awesome event,please make sure you have glasses just like these:

There may be some still on sale for $20 or more. If you aren’t able to purchase some, NASA has a DIY video. You can make your own Solar eclipse glasses to participate.
