The first total Solar Eclipse to be visible in the United States in over 750 years is coming Monday morning. Although a total eclipse will not be seen in Wisconsin, according to Dave Lenius of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society, locals will still be able to see history. He estimates that 75 to 80 percent of the sun will be blocked locally beginning at about 11:45 Monday morning. As far as the best way to observe the eclipse, Lenius shares the safest option.
The eclipse phenomenon will last about two hours, according to Lenius and the public is welcome to watch it at the Leif Everson Observatory in Sturgeon Bay. The Door Peninsula Astronomical Society will also be offering tours of the facilities and providing special eclipse glasses to safely view the eclipse directly with your eyes.
