Eclipse Information

Total Eclipse Graphic

On Monday, August 21, 2017, millions of people across the United States will experience nature’s most wondrous spectacle--a total eclipse of the Sun!  A total eclipse occurs when the Moon completely blocks the Sun, daytime becomes a deep twilight, and the Sun’s corona shimmers in the darkened sky.  Totality is a sight one will not soon forget!

As we celebrate this once in a lifetime experience, CR-VI  would like to provide those in the community an opportunity to witness this spectacle.  While the school itself is just outside of the path, we will be gathering in Martinsburg at the city park to share in the excitement!

What:  Family friendly event to experience the Great American Eclipse

Where:  Martinsburg Park

When:  11 am till 2 pm

At the park:  Inflatables, games, face painting, affordable concessions--food, cotton candy, and snow-cones to name a few items!

At approximately 11:46 am, the partial phases of the sun will begin.  You will need a pair of Eclipse safe glasses to safely view the phases of the Sun (All students in the CR-VI district will be sent home Eclipse safe glasses on Friday, Aug 18th).  Occurring at approximately 1:14 pm, we will be graced with TOTALITY!
