PIH purchases over 500 solar eclipse glasses for residents

Partners in Housing residents gathered to observe the solar eclipse on Monday, April 8. PIH staff purchased over 500 pairs of eclipse viewing glasses and distributed flyers at all properties to ensure residents were informed on safety protocols to protect their eyes.

"This was such a magical experience! As soon as we hit 100% totality, you could hear silence followed by the loudest thunderous applause and cheer!" said Partners in Housing Peer Support Specialist Daniel Higgs.

Fun facts about the eclipse:

☀️ A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth, causing the moon to completely block the face of the sun.

☀️ According to NASA, the next total solar eclipse that can be seen from the contiguous U.S. will be on Aug. 23, 2044.

☀️ The longest recorded total solar eclipse lasted for 7 minutes and 30 seconds.

Thank you to the Partners in Housing staff who organized solar eclipse viewing events and to our fantastic residents who came out to share this incredible natural phenomenon!
