1 It’s Eclipse Day!

The Solar Eclipse will start in the morning on the west coast and the early to mid afternoon on the east coast. In Chatham-Kent the partial eclipse will start at 1:05pm and finishes at 3:48pm.

NASA will be doing a massive live stream during the entire eclipse from 12:00 to 4:00 P.M. Eastern so you can experience it, at nasa.gov.

Meteorologists say the temperature will fall by 10 degrees today in areas affected by the solar eclipse. As soon as the sun returns, it will warm up again. According to zoo experts, nocturnal animals like owls could wake up and start looking for food, elephants will freak out and make a bunch of noise and armadillos could jump three to four feet in the air, which is something they do when they’re scared.
