Total Eclipse Party!

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.  The last time a total eclipse crossed the United States from sea to sea was June 8, 1918.  The 2017 eclipse in either total or partial phase can be seen by over 500 million people in North and South America, Europe and Africa.  In the U.S., millions will gather along a tiny ribbon less than 100 miles wide to see totality, the complete blocking out of the sun by the Mon which will reveal the solar corona.  The Rest of the entire country will be able to see a partial eclipse.  It is also truly a historic event and a wonderful opportunity to view one of nature’s most stunning displays.

Come and join us for this fun Family activity!  Where: Rachel Carson Homestead, 613 Marion Avenue, Springdale, 15144; When: August 21; Time: 1pm to 3 pm.  The Homestead and trails will be open for brief tours, we will be making crafts, having snacks, and viewing the eclipse!  Glasses will be available for viewing, or you can bring a shoe box or cereal box to make your own viewer.

Please call the Springdale Library to register: 724-274-9729.
