On the Waterfront

A Total Eclipse of the Sun!

A total eclipse of the sun will occur through a path of the United States on Monday August 21st. Unforunately Wisconsin is not in this path but that doesn't mean we can't have a party! The Library was able to get 200 pair of glasses that will alllow safe viewing of the sun as the moon travels a path and for a few brief minutes comes between Earth and the Sun. The Library will also be trying to stream the eclipse in an area of totality and we'll also have a craft activity and some kind of treat. This is a family event and because of issues of safety no child 12 and under that is not accompanied by an adult will be able to wear the glasses to view the sun. There will be other things for young children not with an adult to do if they come to the party. The last time the United States saw a total eclipse was in 1979. That's almost 40 years ago folks! If you're lucky enough to be traveling to an area that will see the total eclipse we wish you perfect conditions and a life altering experience. For those of you who will be here in Manawa, even an 80% eclipse will be fun to see - as long as you have those safety glasses on!

BTW, be wary of purchasing eclipse viewing glasses online. There are many counterfeit glasses hitting the market that are not safe. Even if the glasses have the safety logo on them, they might now protect your eyes.

We hope to see you here on the 21st. The fun starts at 12:30, with prime viewing time at 1:15pm.
