Seth and Kat’s 4 Things You Need To Know-August 17th

What has become known as the Great American Solar Eclipse is just days away. The eclipse will begin Monday (8/21) morning but times will vary. The eclipse in Seattle begins at 9:09 am. It will be a few minutes earlier or later depending on how far north/south you are. The whole sky show lasts for a few hours. But the big event happens at 10:21 a.m. in Seattle. That’s when the eclipse will be at the peak with about 92% of the sun covered by the shadow of the moon. That peak only lasts a few minutes.

But it was available long enough for the episode to be shared online on a slew of streaming services.  “The error appears to have originated with a third-party vendor and the episode was removed as soon as it was recognized,”  a spokesperson for HBO Europe says in a statement. The network has since confirmed the episode’s leak “is not connected to the recent cyber incident at HBO in the U.S.”
