    On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun.  Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse, where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.

    This celestial event is a solar eclipse in which the moon passes between the sun and Earth, and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end, as viewed from a given location.  For this eclipse, the longest period when the moon completely blocks the sun from any given location along the path will be about two minutes and 40 seconds.  The last time the contiguous U.S. saw a total eclipse was in 1979.

    We invite you to join us at the Library to watch this celestial show!  In New York, the "show" will start at around 1:20 p.m., peaking at approximately 2:44 p.m.  If the weather cooperates, we will have a limited number of solar glasses for those who wish to view the event outside. Due to the overwhelming response and interest in the eclipse, the eclipse glasses will be given the first 50 registrants.  We ask that families and friends share so all who attend can experience the solar phenomenom.

    Bring an cereal box and make an eclipse projector!
