Solar Eclipse 2017

LIVE STREAM FROM NASA! We will live stream the eclipse from NASA inside at the library. We will also share the few eclipse glasses we have so everyone gets a chance to see the eclipse. Come join us inside or outside starting around 10:15 am! 

 

While the total phase of this solar eclipse is not visible in Colorado it can be observed as a partial solar eclipse! The Moon covers a large portion of the Sun, so this is a spectacular sight. Come get your eclipse glasses free at your Library!

We will also get together to discuss “American Eclipse” by Boulder author David Baron on Aug. 9th at 6:30 pm at the Library! It’s a great science book that reads like fiction. Everyone is welcome and lots of our patrons have read the book! Come on in and discuss what you are doing for the eclipse!

The next total solar eclipse in the Americas comes on April 8, 2024. Totality first touches Mexico, enters the United States at Texas, cuts a diagonal to Maine, and visits the maritime provinces of Canada.  It will be the second total solar eclipse visible from the central United States in just seven years, coming after the August 21st, 2017 eclipse.  Major cities along its path include Dallas, Little Rock, Indianapolis, Cleveland, and Buffalo.
