Join us at the library to safely view a partial solar eclipse!
During the eclipse the Moon will cover a portion of the Sun as it moves in front of the sun in it's orbital path. This eclipse will only be visible in the United States, the eclipse is already being called the “all-American total solar eclipse.” The spectacular total eclipse will only be visible in a narrow band about 60 miles across, stretching diagonally across the country from Oregon to South Carolina. Every state will have at least 60% of the Sun covered by the Moon.
A partial eclipse is dangerous to look at without appropriate eye protection. Solar viewing glasses will be provided.
