No matter where you are, who you are or how many obligations you have on Monday, forget about them, at least for a few hours.
Because there’s no better time to take a moment to unplug. That is, when there’s a solar eclipse on the horizon! (Pardon the pun.)
On Monday, August 21, we’ll be treated to a total eclipse of the sun that can be seen all across North America. Now, you might know this (and probably do given the mass media coverage), but are still saying to yourself, “I can’t miss this meeting,” or, “I’m supposed to be on a conference call” or, “I’ll catch it the next time.”
Why not unplug instead?
This major astronomical event gives you a free pass from the pressures of deadlines and emails, and we invite you to be a part of something the cosmos rarely shows us.
Because the 2017 solar eclipse eclipses everything.
A total solar eclipse that can be seen by everyone in North America won’t come around again until 2024. Don’t wait another seven years to see this phenomenon. For some, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime.
Trust us, your coworkers will understand.
