Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

August 21 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will occur. On this date, the Moon’s shadow will pass across the Pacific Ocean onto the coast of Oregon, and then proceed to fall across all of North America (as Earth rotates), finally entering the Atlantic Ocean on the South Carolina border. This will be the first total solar eclipse to touch the United States since the 1990s (when one occurred on Hawaii), and the first to cover it coast-to-coast since 1918!

In Wisconsin, the total phase of this solar eclipse is not visible in Northern Wisconsin, but a partial solar eclipse can be observed as the Moon covers a large portion of the Sun.

Join us at the Crandon High School Football Field Bleachers on Monday, August 21st at 12:30 pm for a Solar Eclipse Viewing Party! The eclipse will peak at 1:13 pm.

REGISTRATION is REQUIRED AS WE HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF Glasses. GLASSES will be distributed at the event and everyone will be required to have glasses.

Call 478-3784 to reserve your glasses

If it is cloudy we will live stream the event in the lower level of the library
