Solar Eclipse Viewing Party!
Monday August 21, 2017: 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Downtown Library: outside front entrance (Fifth Avenue & Library Lane)
On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun!
Join us outside the Downtown Library (Fifth Avenue & Library Lane) to view this spectacular celestial event! Viewing glasses will be provided.
YOU MUST ALWAYS USE EYE PROTECTION TO VIEW THE ECLIPSE IF YOU ARE IN MICHIGAN!
Though Ann Arbor isn't in the path of totality (where the moon will completely cover the sun), we'll still be able to see a partial solar eclipse (where the moon covers part of the sun's disk). The partial eclipse begins in Ann Arbor at 1:02 pm, with 80% maximum coverage at 2:26 pm.
NASA JPL Solar System Ambassador to Ann Arbor, Jennifer German, will be here to answer your eclipse (and space) questions. Help us spread the word — visit theSolar System Ambassador's Facebook event page. #Eclipse2017
In the event of rain or cloud cover, the party will be moved inside to the Multi-Purpose Room in the lower level of the Downtown Library. We'll watch the NASA live stream from the path of totality on AADL's big screen.
