Information You Need to Know About Monday's Solar Eclipse

Monday is the solar eclipse and here's what you should know:

The Hampton Roads region, and the Commonwealth, will get a partial eclipse. We will see about 80% of the sun covered. In this area, there will not be total darkness, with 20% of the sun still sending light down.

In this partial eclipse area, Herbst said one of the things you want to look for, if you’re outside watching the eclipse, is what shadows look like.

The Virginia Living Museum is hosting solar eclipse events on Monday, April 8.

Come early for the “Eclipse 2024” planetarium show at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. Then, stick around for the eclipse from 2-4:30 p.m. on the Conservation Lawn, weather permitting. Staff will teach guests about the eclipse, you can watch with solar-viewing glasses (available while supplies last at the museum store) and watch a live broadcast from a site of totality.

To visit, normal museum admission is required, and there is an additional cost for the planetarium show.

There are more ways to watch locally, take a look at the local eclipse events here.

Also, if you did buy solar eclipse glasses, make sure of this!

Beware of fake eclipse glasses. On legitimate pairs, the lenses should have a silver appearance on the front and be black on the inside. The manufacturer’s name and address should be clearly labeled, and they should not be torn or punctured. Check, as well, for the ISO logo and the code “IS 12312-2” printed on the inside.
