Eclipse Viewing Party
August 21, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon blocks any part of the Sun. On Monday August 21, 2017, weather permitting, a solar eclipse will be visible across all of North America. It has been 26 years since the last solar eclipse in the US (Hawaii) and 38 years since the last total eclipse on the US Mainland (GreatAmericanEclipse.com). On August 21 people in Illinois are lucky because we have the longest duration of the eclipse!
Don’t you want to witness it?!
Experience the Great American Total Solar Eclipse at Community Park with us. Come for games, crafts and eclipse tracking with viewing glasses (limited supplies available on site). This is a FREE event and no advance registration necessary.
We are co-hosting this event with Fremont Public Library who will also be offering a program on Saturday August 19 with lore, legend and science about eclipses past and present (registration for the program required through the library for the Aug. 19 event).
