Event Details

At around 4:30 pm on October 23, 2014 San Franciscans can witness a Partial Solar Eclipse over the Bay Area. A partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon covers only a part of the Sun, sometimes resembling a bite taken out of a cookie. The partial eclipse will be visible throughout most of North and Central America.

> Remember, it’s of the utmost importance to use proper eye protection when watching the partial eclipse of the sun, so that you don’t risk serious eye injury or blindness.
