The partial solar eclipse is now just around the corner. On October 23rd you can don your AWB solar glasses and take a glance at this beautiful celestial event. If you missed getting our filtered glasses, there are other safe ways to view it. Please don't look directly at the sun!
Depending on where you live in North America, you will be able to see more or less of the sun during this event. Check out what you will see in your locale below.
