Businesses learning to capitalize on eclipse

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) The Great American Eclipse is less than four months away, and residents and businesses are continuing to find ways to get involved. A meeting in Casper on Tuesday introduced new event hosts for the eclipse festival. Executive director Anna Wilcox finds more community members realizing what they can do to promote it. She also says there's a good chance for you to experiment this week.

"Thursday, April 20th at 11:42 A.M.," Wilcox says, "The sun will actually be in the exact same place in the sky that it will be on august 21st for the eclipse.”

Wilcox also says it's important for viewers to know that you should not need to move that much when watching the eclipse and as always never look directly at the sun.
