Vienna, VA

At 2:30 PM on Monday, 4/8, ActioNeters gathered at the ActioNet HQ top level garage to celebrate Solar Eclipse 2024, an event that occurs every 20 years with the moon coming in between the sun and the Earth, and it’ll block out the majority of light coming from the sun. As a result, it will cast a shadow on the Earth.

Virginia was in the “penumbra,” the larger but partial (~78%) shadow from the eclipse with the sun appearing crescent shaped. Watching the Eclipse requires special polarized glasses to protect the eyes from the sun as shown below:

We enjoyed sharing this “once every twenty years” experience as a Team!
