Today is the day that the moon will eclipse the sun. Some schools will be having watch parties and stores around the county have sold out of the popular eclipse glasses.

If you want to get in on the fun and help NASA right from where you are, then NASA is encouraging you to download their app GLOBE Observer and become a citizen scientist.

LeFlore County will be able to see 86.6 percent of the eclipse while Sallisaw will see 87.7 percent. You can begin to see the eclipse at approximately 11:40 a.m. the max will be shortly after 1 p.m. and the event will be complete by 3 p.m. If you don't want to watch it outside, you can watch the eclipse online live at
