The countdown is on to the total solar eclipse occurring on August 21st. The total eclipse will span in visual sites from Oregon to South Carolina. The eclipse will move out about 70 miles north of Savannah through Charleston. This has forced our area to prepare for effects of the eclipse, including darkness and lack of visibility. Savannah Chatham Public Schools has cancelled all classes on August 21st, as a safety precaution. In addition Live Oak Public Libraries are disseminating eclipse glasses to the public to protect the public’s sight when looking at the eclipse. A total eclipse will block the light of the sun and the public is advised to not look directly at the sky. Want to learn more about what’s in store with the total eclipse?
