Solar Eclipse Viewing on Yacht Kingston

Join us on August 21st for this rare opportunity in NY Harbor. Come cruise with us and view the partial eclipse of the sun (weather permitting). A solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, casting a shadow on earth. Here in New York City we will see a partial eclipse, with 71% of the sun covered by the moon. The first contact of the moon passing in front of the sun is at 1:23, the maximum coverage is at 2:44 and the final contact is at 4:00. We will provide you with protective eyewear as it’s important to never look directly at the sun without proper eye protection.
