The Rare Natural Phenomenon In Pennsylvania That Will Go Down In History

Mark August 21, 2017 down on your calendar. That’s when Americans will slip on their protective glasses and turn their faces toward the sky to view the Great American Eclipse. Pennsylvania isn’t, unfortunately, in the direct path for a full solar eclipse. However, we will still get a partial view of this rare natural phenomenon in Pittsburgh.

Note: Northern Pennsylvania is predicted to be in the path of the full solar eclipse on April 8, 2024.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
