Solar Eclipse

In Northwest Arkansas we will experience a partial solar eclipse which occurs when the moon moves between the Earth and the Sun.  

WARNING:  DO NOT look directly at the sun even during an eclipse without protective eyewear!  This can cause permanent blindness.

Just a few hours drive to the north in a swath across the northern portion of Missouri from Kansas City to Nashville a total solar eclipse will be visible.
