Some eclipse viewing advice from Rivet|MRO

The Great American Eclipse will take place on Monday, August 21, 2017. At Rivet|MRO, we're fortunate enough to have our Lake St. Louis offices located within the totality of the eclipse.

With that, we've done some preparation, and wanted to share some eclipse viewing advice in advance of the big day. So please take a moment to watch our short video,which, incidentally, will last just about as long as the totality of the eclipse in Lake St. Louis.

Also, as this is the first time our region will enjoy a total solar eclipse since July 7, 1442, our offices will be closed between 11:30 am and 2 pm for some eclipse watching (with approved safety glasses, of course).

Finally, please note, we also will be closing our offices again for the next total solar eclipse in our area, which will take place on Wednesday, June 3, 2505.
