    Eyes. Ears. Nose. Mouth. Hands.
    Experience drives the imagination.
    To places wonderful.
    And mysterious.
    By seeing, feeling, and touching what is.
    We picture what isn’t. Yet.
    And then questions flash. Gears turn. Pencils fly.
    Imaginations explode.
    Because we’re inspired,
    To figure out.
    To invent.
    To create. And maybe.
    Just maybe.
    To make the world a better place.
    Just Imagine.

    This summer, the USA will experience a total solar eclipse for the first time since February 1979. The Moon will not completely block the Sun in New England, but we will be able to experience a partial eclipse. Scroll along this page to see how the Sun and Moon look during a total eclipse, and for tips on safely viewing the eclipse from Boston.

    Safety Tips:

    1. NEVER look at the Sun when any portion of its bright disk is visible without proper eye protection — or permanent loss of vision will result! This applies during the entire partial eclipse!

    2. Only use approved eclipse glasses or solar filters to view the Sun; materials such as sunglasses, photographic film, polarizing filters or aluminized plastic are unsafe for solar viewing

    3. Use a solar filter that mounts snugly on the large end of a telescope, not at the eyepiece where it can crack under the intense heat.

    4. A safe way of viewing the eclipse, especially for groups, is the projection method shown in the video below.

    5. Do not use ordinary binoculars; there is no way to safely install a filter on them.

    6. New England will not experience totality; therefore, these safety precautions must be strictly observed at all times
