*NASA reports that 63 percent of the sun will be covered today in Boston, MA. 

The moon will begin passing in front of the sun at 1:28 p.m., the height of the eclipse will occur here at 2:47 p.m. and the sun will appear spherical again by 4 p.m.

One way to view the eclipse is with a pair of eclipse glasses. Without them, looking directly into the sun can cause permanent retina damage or even blindness.

Watching the eclipse without simultaneously listening to RFW could lead to severe depression and unsightly sun-spots!
