UPDATE: Taking in the partial eclipse in Old Town

# # #

Original Post: So you somehow managed to resist to urge to head down to Texas to experience temporary darkness. How extremely unadventurous-but-responsible you are! But don’t worry, the skies here in Humboldt are not going to be completely bereft of eclipse activity. 

For example, here in Eureka, where the weather forecast suggests partly cloudy conditions, we’ll still experience roughly 26% obscuration when the eclipse peaks late morning. Yay, us!

Here’s your guide for when to glance up (while donning the special glasses you hopefully have left over from the last Humboldt eclipse, of course).

  • 10:21 a.m.: Partial eclipse begins
  • 11:16 a.m.: Maximum coverage
  • 12:13 p.m.: Partial eclipse ends.

That’s what you get! Enjoy your slightly weird Monday, Humboldt.
