There are many celebrations and events all across Seattle Metro Area.
In Seattle, the eclipse will be about 92% complete. It will still be amazing to watch. The eclipse should reach its peak at about 10:20 in the morning.
If you’re looking for more natural and spontaneous experience, and if the weather allows it, you can try to find a viewing point on your own: a southeast view will be preferable. The eastern edge of Lake Washington is highly recommended.
Make sure you’re watching the eclipse using certified eclipse glasses or any other method for safe viewing.
