Did you know that the upcoming coast-to-coast total solar eclipse is the first of its kind in almost 100 years? Or that the moon's shadow will be moving across the earth at nearly 3,000 miles an hour when the eclipse begins in Oregon, but only 1,462 when it reaches Kentucky? Well, you can learn even more if you join us for an informational session on Wednesday, August 16 at 2:00 pm as we prepare for the eclipse next week. You could be one of the 10 lucky winners of a pair of eclipse viewing glasses! You can also make your own a pinhole projector!
Then (come rain, gloom or shine) on Monday, August 21st join us as the partial eclipse reaches its peak locally (0.69) at 10:19 am for a live stream of NASA's Eclipse Across America from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. Let's all celebrate the end of the "eclipse drought" for the United States! Welcome in the first of three eclipses to cross over much of America during the next seven years!
