As you marvel at the skies, take in the breathtaking views of Independence Hall.

While it’s an exciting event, safety is paramount when viewing the sun. Be sure to use protective eyewear provided on-site, especially designed for solar observation. Never look directly at the sun without proper protection, as it can cause serious eye damage.
