South Bass Island resident and official astronomy ambassador Gene Zajac offers the following:

“The partial solar eclipse begins at 5:50 pm and ends at sunset, around 6:40 pm.  As the sun nears the  horizon, the moon will increase in blocking the sun.  Remember, it is never safe to look directly at the sun.  Specially made eclipse glasses and binoculars with safe filters between the sun and the binoculars are safe ways to see the eclipse.  I will have safe viewers at the State park to see the sun set into the lake.  Since it is heading into dusk during the eclipse, there will not be a noticeable darkening of the sky.  Only a s mall portion of the sun will be blocked by the moon.  Do not look at the sun without safe filters!

More information is available from the NASA official solar eclipse website.
