§ The first U.S. coast-to-coast solar eclipse since 1918 is happening today!
§ The last time one was seen from the U.S. was 1979.
§ Our view in Las Vegas starts around 9:09am and will not be a full eclipse view, but will be about 72% coverage.
§ The maximum block-out will occur at 10:27am and the eclipse will end at 11:52am.
§ If you miss this eclipse, you’ll have to wait seven years to see another one in the continental U.S…it will occur on April 8, 2024 but that eclipse will only swing from Texas up into Maine.
§ If you want to watch it safely, you can check out the livestream on mix941.fm!
