Solar Eclipse Viewing Party
Join us at our Newport Branch for a solar eclipse viewing party on Monday, August 21!
Registration is required for this program. Supplies are limited, so solar eclipse viewing glasses will only be available to the first 115 people who register (only two per household).
If you are not one of the first 115 people to register, we will have a viewing station available with 10 pairs of glasses. At the station, individuals will be able to watch the eclipse for five minutes at a time.
In addition to viewing the eclipse, we will have a planetarium area where attendees can see up to 60,000 stars! There will also be space crafts, games and a raffle for the “National Geographic Kids First Big Book of Space.”
