What will the weather be like in Pueblo during the April 8 solar eclipse? Here’s a sneak peek way too early

It’s a little early to predict precisely what will happen with the weather in Pueblo during the April 8 solar eclipse, but some early projections predict partly cloudy skies and a temperature near 68 degrees.

“It’s so dangerous that people forget to never look at the sun. Severe burns can damage your eyes and you’ll never recover,” Brown said. “Using something that collects light and focuses it like telescopes or binoculars is the worst.”

Brown said eclipse glasses should be used and removed only when the sun is completely obscured by the moon. When the sun begins to appear behind the moon, put your glasses back on.

“Although this will be the last solar eclipse visible across the contiguous United States until 2044, the path of totality for the August 12, 2045 solar eclipse will be…
