A total solar eclipse is one of the most spectacular sights in nature, and if you’re up for a road trip, you can see it this summer. The solar eclipse will cross the length of the U.S. for the first time in 99 years.
The earth, moon, and sun line up just right for a total eclipse somewhere on earth twice a year, but there hasn’t been an alignment like the one coming August 21, since 1918.
But if you aren’t up for the trek and are staying here in Baltimore, we’ve got a few fun ideas for you to celebrate the phenomenon.
- World of Beer – Baltimore will be pouring Oliver Brewing Co.’s Staring at the Sun beginning at noon, enjoy $4 pints until the keg kicks.
- The Maryland Science Center is hosting a special eclipse watch party on Aug. 21.
- Cylburn Arboretum is also hosting a special eclipse watch party.
