6 solar eclipse viewing parties for kids

It won't happen again for many years, so you might want to make the most of the upcoming solar eclipse. Next Monday, August 21st, the moon will pass between the earth and the sun, creating a total solar eclipse for many viewers across the United States of America.

Those of us viewing from Milwaukee will be able to see a partial eclipse of 83% at 1:18 p.m. The entire show will last from 11:53 to 2:40.

You must use NASA-approved glasses if you're planning to view the solar eclipse. (No, dark sunglasses cannot replace eclipse glasses.) Many of the events listed below offer free or inexpensive eclipse glasses while supplies last.
