Tips and Information about the Solar Eclipse - View Yours By Boat

Solar Eclipse - 2017 - Seabrook Marina Texas

On August 21, the United States will see its first total solar eclipse in 99 years.

Where will you catch this rare solar eclipse event? Experience these prime viewing destinations by boat.

Lots of people! Everyone in the contiguous United States, in fact, everyone in North America plus parts of South America, Africa, and Europe will see at least a partial solar eclipse, while the thin path of totality will pass through portions of 14 states.   The shadow of the moon will cut through the entire nation from Oregon to South Carolina.

The last time the U.S. had an exclusive total eclipse was in 1776 and people are traveling from all over the world to hotspots in the path of totality, a 60-mile wide path across the U.S. that can see the full eclipse versus a partial eclipse. Take that solar eclipse trip up a notch and enjoy the eclipse from a different vantage point – on the water.

It is never safe to look directly at the sun – even if the sun is partly obscured. During the short time when the moon completely obscures the sun – known as the period of totality – it is safe to look directly at the star, but it's crucial that you know when to take off and put back on your solar eclipse viewing glasses.

How Can You See It?

You never want to look directly at the sun without appropriate protection except during totality.  That could severely hurt your eyes.  However, there are many ways to safely view an eclipse of the sun including direct viewing – which requires some type of filtering device and indirect viewing where you project an image of the sun onto a screen. Both methods should produce clear images of the partial phase of an eclipse.  Click here for eclipse viewing techniques and safety.
