The Great American Eclipse is upon us and everyone with eclipse glasses in Philadelphia will be looking up at around 2:44PM to see the max coverage of the eclipse. The nearest path of totality for us will be in Tennessee or South Carolina, so unless you trek down I-95 you will see a partial eclipse from Philly.

There’s a viewing party at The Franklin Institute but most people will simply view the eclipse from their home, office or from a sidewalk. Others will find the best view from Benjamin Rush State Park, Belmont Plateau, Penn Treaty Park, a bridge or One Liberty.

While most of us will have a great time looking at the celestial event, there will unfortunately be people who become distracted while behind the wheel and cause car accidents. If you or a loved one is injured during the eclipse due to someone’s distracted driving, contact us for a free consultation.

Stay safe!

Most police departments across the US reminding people to not stop their vehicle on the road. Philadelphia Police reminded people of this today as well:

Additionally, be sure to wear eclipse glasses if you look up!
