On Monday, August 21, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible in continental United States for the first time in almost 40 years, but will be seen as a partial eclipse (80 % magnitude) for us in Harrison County. The viewing starts when the eclipse passes over Ohio starting at around
1:04 pm with a max at around 2:30 pm and ending at approximately 3:52 pm.
This is a wonderful opportunity to view one of nature’s most stunning displays.
Viewers will need protective eyewear in order to watch the solar eclipse. Cadiz, Freeport, and Scio will provide FREE eclipse viewing glasses for the event. Fact sheets and information will also be available at each library location.
While we are waiting, join Dr. Pendleton at 1:30 p.m. at the Puskarich Public Library for some facts and fun about the sun.
