Solar Eclipse Viewing Parties

On August 21, 2017, skies darkened from Oregon to South Carolina in the first total solar eclipse visible from coast to coast across the United States in 99 years. So what do you do when your office sits along the Path of Totality?

You throw an office party, of course, complete with cake and other goodies. That’s exactly what our Columbia, SC team did as they celebrated the rare opportunity to take in a total solar eclipse. But, they weren’t the only GES office excited about the eclipse.  Employees across the country took a few minutes out of their day to steal a glimpse the partial eclipse, which was still pretty cool.

And yes, approved solar viewing glasses were worn by everyone as recommended by NASA and GES’ Vice President of HSSE, Tom Baylis.
