A Nationwide Solar Eclipse Is Just Days Away!

On April 8th, 2024 a big chunk of our nation will witness a solar eclipse. In some regions, it will be, "Total," meaning that the sun gets blocked out for a few minutes in an incredibly cool and vaguely eerie fashion. Back in 2017, when Clarkson was but a wee baby, we got to witness a total solar eclipse in Saint Louis! Totality will not be achieved where we live this coming Monday, but a big chunk of the sun will still be blocked out, with other regions not too far from us getting to experience, "Totality." I am excited for another solar eclipse, be it partial or full. Just make sure that if you view the solar eclipse, you practice proper eye safety and wear the special glasses you can buy or get for free at numerous places (stores, libraries, schools, and so forth). I'm excited for Clarkson to experience his second-ever eclipse and Gibson will be witnessing his first--good times all around!
