Solar Eclipse Viewing

Solar Eclipse Viewing

Posted by Dorothy on 14th Mar 2024

The Made in America Store is pleased to invite the community to view the eclipse from our expansive lawn on Monday, April 8, 2024. The viewing is free to the public!

Located at 1000 West Maple Court, in Elma, NY, our sprawling, 8-acre lawn offers the perfect spot for experiencing this celestial event. Ample, free parking is available for your vehicles.

Mister's Food Truck will be on-site with food for purchase, including their famous smash burgers and tasty macaroni and cheese!

But that's not all – Main Street Winery, hailing from Arcade, NY, will be hosting a special wine tasting, and their wine slushies will be available for purchase.

And to keep the fun going, Nashville Recording Artist, Ricky Lee, will be performing live, adding some musical entertainment to the event. Plus, be sure to grab a sample of his chili!

Just bring your own:

According to the Rochester Museum and Science Center/Strasenburgh Planetarium: The moon will begin to cover the sun at 2:04 p.m. More and more of the sun will be covered over the next 1 hour and 10 minutes. This time is called a partial phase. ECLIPSE GLASSES MUST BE WORN!

* Totality begins at about 3:15 p.m. and lasts 3 minutes 45 seconds.

* After totality, the moon gradually uncovers the Sun in a second partial phase. ECLIPSE GLASSES MUST BE WORN!

* The eclipse ends for Buffalo viewers at about 4:30 p.m.

Note: Ophthalmologists suggest waiting for a time before taking the eclipse glasses off for totality, viewing the total eclipse for two minutes or so, then placing the eclipse glasses back on well before the 3 minute 45 second mark of totality ends. This is meant to exercise extra caution to protect your eyes.
