On October 23 all of North America and parts of Central America will have the chance to view a partial solar eclipse.
An eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However a partial eclipse is when the center of the shadow of the moon misses the Earth causing only part of the Sun to be obscured.
WARNING: you must NEVER look at the sun with the naked eye. For protection, you can use specialized solar glasses that filters the damaging rays of the sun.
AWB has glasses for such an occation. Don't forget, that when you're buying these glasses, you're also supporting great international outreach programs!
