Eclipse programming at the Hays Public Library

Eclipse programming at the Hays Public Libraryā€¯

Those interested in catching a safe view of the solar eclipse can stop by the Oak Park Public Library's viewing party August 21. The maximum eclipse is expected to occur at approximately 1:20 p.m., officials said. Come to the library for a viewing party! "Call your location or email ask@bpl.org w/ your location to see about availability".

Ever since I read Mark Twain's "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" as a young girl, l have wanted to experience a total eclipse of the sun.

Dr. Stramel Presents the Solar Eclipse: On August 14 at 6 PM, Dr. Dean Stramel of Fort Hays State University will educate patrons about the science of the total solar eclipse.

Although the glare of the sun will seem like it's less harsh during the partial eclipse, it's still highly damaging to your eyes. This one will carve a path across the entire country - and Nebraska happens to be a prime spot for viewing it. The library will also hand out free eclipse glasses at the event to ensure the eclipse can be viewed safely.

You can get more information and safe viewing options from NASA and the American Astronomical Society.

The American Astronomical Society has listed manufacturers of eclipse glasses on their site, which are verified to be compliant with the ISO 12312-2 global safety standard. "We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse".
