Cosmic Magic – The Solar Eclipse of 2017

Cosmic MagicCan you feel the planets aligning? There is cosmic magic at work right now and you can thank your lucky stars, because you’re going to be a part of it!

Our sun, moon and Earth will all momentarily align on Monday, August 21st – a.k.a the Solar Eclipse.

amazingThe last time a Solar Eclipse even came close to the US was in 1991 when  it was visible in parts of Hawaii. So, this is an extremely special time to be alive and able to witness such a phenomena. There are 5 US states that will actually experience this year’s Eclipse in its totality. Unfortunately, Minnesota and Wisconsin are not one of those states, but we will have 80-85% visibility of the eclipse at approximately 1:05pm.


If you’d like to witness the Total Solar Eclipse, there are links at the bottom of this page that will help you pick your viewing location (outside of MN/WI); make sure to stop by Hideaway to grab your Solar Eclipse Viewing Glasses first!

Guidelines for viewing:

DO NOT attempt to view the solar eclipse without protect eyewear.
Regular sunglasses ARE NOT protective eyewear.
DO NOT use an unfiltered camera, telescope or binoculars to view the eclipse.
DO NOT take off your protective eyewear unless you are viewing the Total Solar Eclipse (which is only for 2+ minutes and not visible in MN or WI).
DO pick up your free protective eyewear from Hideaway (just say the word – MN Legit), so that you won’t miss out on this planetary phenomena.

Happy, safe viewing everyone!!
