Good morning BCS! It’s one busy day but the major topic for many will be the solar eclipse. This post will cover the big events in town.

The Solar Eclipse will peek here in BCS at 1:13 p.m. You cannot watch it unless you have special protective eye wear. You can make a pinhole projector from a cereal box. See how from NASA:
