Total Solar Eclipse Viewing and Live Stream
August 21, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us in garden between Robbins Library and Town Hall on Monday August 21 as we attempt to view the total solar eclipse from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The first 40 attendees will receive solar-viewing eclipse glasses, while supplies last (limit 1 per person / 1 per family). Glasses will be distributed at 2:00 p.m in the Winfield Robbins Memorial Garden. Look for the library staff member wearing a blue Robbins Library apron. Prime viewing time for the Boston area is about 2:46 pm.
Streaming in Children’s starting at 1:30 p.m. for children and caregivers.
Streaming in the Community Room starting at 2:00 p.m. for adults and teens.
Glasses are from the Space Science Institute’s STAR_Net initiative, supported by NASA, Google, and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. More than 2 million ISO-compliant safe solar eclipse glasses have been distributed to more than 6,900 libraries all across the U.S.
The Children’s Room will have pin-hole cardboard viewers available.
