Do you remember where you were on February 26, 1979? That was the date of the last total solar eclipse that was visible from the mainland United States.
Monday, August 21, a solar eclipse will cut across the entire United States and will stretch from Oregon to South Carolina including the southwestern tip of North Carolina. It will begin on the Oregon coast as a partial eclipse at 9:06 AM (PDT) and will end along the South Carolina coast at about 4:06 PM (EDT).
In the Cary area, the maximum coverage will occur around 2:44 p.m.
Please remember to wear special eclipse glasses for viewing. NASA recommends that they be ISO certified and it will say: ‘ISO 12313—2”. You can find more information about how to safely view the eclipse HERE.
While many of you will be viewing from your backyard, Lochmere’s pools or Lake Lochmere should provide good viewing. For those who can’t make it outdoors, NASA will be live-streaming the eclipse on its website HERE and broadcast live television coverage from 1 to 4 p.m. with NASA experts stationed along the path of totality.
Are you wondering what to do on the last Saturday night before Wake County traditional schools start on August 28?

The Lochmere Board and Lakes Committee are very pleased to announce that the dredging of Lake Lochmere has been completed.
The lake and boat ramp are open to our residents. We hope that our lake users will be happy that the north section is now navigable.
A post-dredge survey still needs to be conducted to verify spoil removal and provide Lochmere with a bench mark of the lake depths.
We thank residents for their patience during this project.
Although exact plans and dates are not in place yet for Loch Lomond dredging, it is the desire of the Board to tackle this lake next.
