Go Dark Charleston – August 21

Have you made plans for watching the eclipse on August 21? Many events are planned for our area, including one at our own Seabrook Island Club, an all-island event, but should you prefer to venture further afield, visit Go Dark Charleston for more information.

There are more than 100 eclipse events listed, including a Riverdogs eclipse baseball game, but one of the largest is expected to be Eclipse on a Warship, which takes place on the aircraft carrier and warship museum U.S.S. Yorktown. Visitors will be able to catch the eclipse from the boat’s flight deck, where Dr. Christian Iliadis, chairman of the department of physics and astronomy at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, will give a presentation on the eclipse and answer questions. Totality is expected at 2:48 p.m. for between 90 seconds to two and half minutes.
