WOODBURY – It’s going to get a little dark outside the afternoon of August 21. That’s because a partial solar eclipse will cut across the United States. While the northeast is outside of the range of a total eclipse we will be able to view a near total eclipse.
In celebration of this celestial event staff from the Woodbury Public Library will be hosting a viewing at the Hollow Park at 2 p.m. Librarian Tom Borysiewicz will give a short talk about the significance of eclipses in history and literature. Eclipse glasses will be provided as well as a children’s craft.
The eclipse will start at 1:24 p.m. and will reach its max at 2:45 p.m. (with 68.6% of the sun blocked) and end at 4 p.m.
The drop-in program is free, please contact the library for more information at 203-263-3502.
