Let’s Celebrate on April 8!

On April 8, 2024, people within a 124-mile wide stretch of Ohio will experience a total solar eclipse – where the moon appears to totally obscure the sun. And for those not in the path of totality, a partial eclipse will be viewable.

A total solar eclipse is a rare and unique event. Ohio’s last visible total solar eclipse was over 200 years ago – in 1806! To celebrate this truly unique event, Ohio Proud partners are getting into the Solar Eclipse spirit with special events, limited edition products, and the release of special menu items!

It’s never safe to look directly at the sun’s rays, even if the sun is partially obscured. The only safe way to look directly at a partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewers. Click to find AAS Reputable Vendors for solar eclipse viewers.
