On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s tenuous atmosphere – the corona – can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk. (NASA)
Rockwall’s own NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, Max Corneau, will bring solar telescopes and eclipse glasses to the Rockwall County Library for a safe and fun experience that’s out of this world! Bring your families and friends to this come-and-go event, from 11:30AM to 3PM.
Cool activities and more is available online at the official NASA 2017 Total Solar Eclipse site.
