Calling all stargazers and cosmic explorers! Are you ready for the most epic celestial show of the year? At Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area, we believe in the power of education and exploration. We are thrilled to share this special event with our communities.

Get hyped in the coming weeks; we will witness a mind-boggling total solar eclipse on April 8th, 2024. Let’s dive into the science behind solar eclipses and learn how they happen. You can explore books, websites, or educational videos to unearth intriguing facts about the sun, moon, and Earth's orbit.

Looking into the science, the celestial phenomenon will traverse the United States, painting the sky with a breathtaking display. The Moon will gracefully position itself between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow over the entire Sun. It’s a celestial game of hide-and-seek, a spectacle that will leave you in awe. On the day of the eclipse, find a safe spot outdoors with a clear view of the sky.
