SOLAR ECLIPSE 2017
About the Great American Eclipse
Solar Eclipse 2017
On August 21, 2017, the sun will seemingly disappear from the sky during the first full solar eclipse visible in the continental U.S. since 1979. Geographical locations where the sun will totally disappear behind the shadow of the moon, also know as the totality zone, will occur over a 75 mile wide strip across the country.
Starting on the Oregon Coast near Lincoln City around 9:00 a.m. and leaving the continental U.S. on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean near Charleston, South Carolina at about 4:00 pm., safe viewing will require using solar filter material that conforms to and meets the Transmission Requirements of ISO 12312-2, Filters for Direct Observation of the Sun.
We can help you with your complete Eclipse 2017 campaign including fully customized eclipse glasses designs, microsites, eDMs, and even solar-powered products imprinted with your logo. Contact Lorri Quas at 208 388-3938 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
