Where to watch the solar eclipse in Bos­ton

Metro USA (Boston) - - NEWS - ERIN TIERNAN

For Bos­to­ni­ans the up­com­ing to­tal eclipse of the sun will be more like a par­tial eclipse of the sun — Bos­ton is about 15 hours from clos­est prime view­ing lo­ca­tions in South Carolina.

The solar eclipse will sweep across the United States at 2:43 p.m. on Mon­day, Aug. 21 from Ore­gon to Ge­or­gia, leav­ing Bos­to­ni­ans well out of range to see the to­tal eclipse, but a par­tial eclipse will still be visible as the moon passes in front of the sun.

Bos­ton is still ready to party, though, and Lyft is of­fer­ing cus­tomers up to $10 off on eclipse day.

There are a few lo­ca­tions that will be cel­e­brat­ing the eclipse on Mon­day, but you’ll have to pick just one, as the eclipse will only last for a brief two min­utes and 35 sec­onds: - Bos­ton Public Li­brary in Co­p­ley Square - Bos­ton Public Li­brary Adams Street branch - Mat­ta­pan Branch of the Bos­ton Public Li­brary - Chelsea Public Li­brary - Bos­ton Chil­dren’s Mu­seum - Kresge Oval at MIT - Cen­ten­nial Com­mon at North­east­ern Univer­sity - The Blue Hill Ob­ser­va­tory and Sci­ence Cen­ter.
