Solar Eclipse

Solar Eclipse 2017

NOTE: NOT ALL LIBRARIES HAVE SOLAR ECLIPSE GLASSES.

Solar Eclipse glasses are only available at SELECT libraries DURING their eclipse events, while supplies last.

If the library has eclipse viewing glasses, it is noted in the description of the event (below).

On Monday, August 21, 2017, North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun (from NASA Total Solar Eclipse). Southern California will experience a partial eclipse. Watch NASA's live stream online.

Your eyes are precious! Read these important safety information from NASA and a listing of Reputable Vendors of Solar Filters & Viewers.

No solar eclipse glasses? Make your own pinhole camera!

From the NASA website: "The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight."
