Eclipse 101 at the Longview Library
8/16/2017 5:30 PM
Longview, Washington 98632
Wednesday, August 16, our local NASA Ambassador, Greg Cermak, will be at the Longview Library presenting “An Eclipse to Remember.” Learn about Eclipse 101 ahead of the solar eclipse on August 21 as well as how to enjoy a partial eclipse, why a total eclipse is a big deal, resources for viewing the eclipse, the sun and space weather, 1859 – the week the Sun touched the Earth, and NASA’s STEREO mission and highlights.
At 5:30 PM, before the presentation, attendees will be able to join Greg outside to view the sun directly – and safely – through a pair of astronomical binoculars with solar filters mounted on a tripod.
The presentation begins at 6:00 PM. Eclipse glasses, provided by STAR_Net, will be available for free following the presentation. No registration is necessary. For more information, call the library at 360.442.5300.
