What You Need to Know About the Solar Eclipse

Are you excited about the solar eclipse? Us too! Today, August 21, 2017, the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s atmosphere, thus creating a “blackout.” The celestial event will be the first in decades since the last total eclipse took place in the United States, and the first in over a century to have a path of totality span most of the country. Kele cares about your well-being.  Please remember to protect your vision while viewing the eclipse by wearing ISO-compliant solar glasses. Your vision may be impaired during the eclipse, so take extra caution! You don’t want to go blind!

If you ever find yourself in the dark, Kele offers a variety of solar-related products suitable for various applications.  Many of these products are in-stock and ready to ship today!

The estimated start time for the eclipse on the West Coast is 9:05 am PDT with totality beginning at 10:16 am PDT.  The total eclipse should end at 2:48 pm EDT near Charleston, South Carolina, with the full lunar shadow fading at 4:09 pm EDT.  The path of totality will cover a 70-mile span crossing the entire U.S. from West to East.

Enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime show!
