Free eclipse viewing glasses will be provided at the event while supplies last. We regret that we do not have enough to give any out before the 21st. You can bring a picnic lunch. All ages welcome!

Here's more info to get ready for the "All American Solar Eclipse".

Eclipse Live - NASA Television will air a multi-hour show, Eclipse Across America: Through the Eyes of NASA, with unprecedented live video of the celestial event, along with coverage of activities in parks, libraries, stadiums, festivals and museums across the nation, and on social media.

Eclipse Megamovie 2017 - What will the eclipse look like where you are? Put in a city name or ZIP code, and see an animated movie that will show the eclipse from beginning to end, including the peak eclipse time.

NASA Goddard - Visualizing the 2017 All-American Eclipse - The video features several visualizations of this event. From behind Earth, we see the night sides of both Earth and the moon and the umbral and penumbral shadow cones projecting from the moon. We then see the tilted orbit of the moon and the long, thin shadow cones striking Earth. In the view from behind the moon, we see the daylit far side of the moon and the Western Hemisphere of Earth, and from this vantage point, the outline of the shadow on Earth is circular.

Solar Vision - Explore the Sun's features and see current solar images courtesy of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. You can also get a preview of what you'll see in a total solar eclipse. App is available in iTunes and Google Play.

GLOBE Observer - Make environmental observations that complement NASA satellite observations to help scientists studying Earth and the global environment.
