Brattleboro Eclipse Viewing


Today's the day for the solar eclipse. It won't be total here, but some eclipsing will happen early this afternoon. Here's what the National Weather Service in Albany says says:

"Although the high pressure area will continue to depart, it will remain close enough to the area to keep it precip free through the day today. Much attention is being given to the sky cover forecast, due to the partial solar eclipse that will occur this afternoon. Based on the 3km HRRR, sky cover should be fairly sunny for much of the area through the day. There could be some passing scattered high clouds for areas south of Albany this afternoon, but sky cover will generally be fairly clear. The time of max eclipse at Albany is around 2:42 pm edt, with the peak obscuration around 66 percent. Be sure to protect your eyes if you plan to view the eclipse and check our social media outlets for additional info."
