GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Greenburgh Central School District is going all out for the solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21.
A viewing party will be held at Woodlands High School Soccer Field from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m with 250 approved viewing glasses being handed out.
During the eclipse , the sun will disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight, and leading to a quick plunge in temperature before streamers of light streaking across the sky around the moon's silhouette.
It will mark the first time a total solar eclipse will be visible from the mainland United States since 1979.
The Aug. 21 eclipse will also be the first to sweep across the entire country since 1918.
After Aug. 21, the next total solar eclipse is due for April 2024.
