New Yorkers Excited for Eclipse

It’s the moment many have been waiting for.

On Monday the moon will align with the sun across the United States, creating the first total eclipse in 99 years.  It begins at 1:23 and lasts until 4 p.m. in New York.  The height of it is at 2:44 p.m. where we will see a 71-percent eclipse.

New Yorkers are expected to head to their rooftops on Monday afternoon.  Others will head to areas like Central Park or the riverfront to get the best possible view of the eclipse.

If you want to see the eclipse, you’ll need to wear a special pair of sunglasses to protect your eyesight.  Long lines have been reported at stores around New York City as people waited for a pair.
