Tentative 7-day forecast from wunderground.com. This could change. Right now it looks GOOD.


First and foremost, we, in New Hampshire, will NOT see the full total solar eclipse.

The total eclipse is only going to be visible south, southwest and west of us — in places like South Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri, Nebraska, Wyoming etc.

We will ONLY see a partial 62% coverage solar eclipse. But, even that should be fun.

It will start at 1:27pm and end at 3:57pm. So a 2.5 hour show with maximum coverage, i.e., 62%, at 2:45pm.

Right now the weather forecast for Monday, August 21, 2017 calls for clear skies. So that is good — but that can change.

You really should get some proper eclipse glasses for this. I have ordered these from Amazon.

Do NOT confuse this August 7 – 8, 2017 partial Lunar eclipse with the BIG ONE — the August 21, 2017, Total Solar Eclipse. That is a totally different kettle of fish. Yes, that will be visible in New Hampshire. More on that once we get past this one since there will be lots of confusion.

What it will look like. The disc of the Sun will be blocked by the shadow of the moon. You will see sunlight behind the shadow.
