WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y.- Thursday was the second time just this month that Western New Yorkers were able to see an eclipse in our skies.
A free public viewing of the partial solar eclipse was held at Williamsville North High School's football field, complete with telescopes and special glasses to look at the sun.
"The moon will be covering the edge of the sun just slightly and we also have some pretty massive groups of sun spots to look at while were waiting," Mark Percy, Planetarium Director of Williamsville Schools said. "An event like this you can't look at without proper solar filters. We advertise widely, don't try this at home."
The eclipse occurred at dusk, with the setting sun appearing to have a small slice taken out of it by the moon on its right side.
