If we’re lucky and the weather permits, everyone in the U.S., as well as parts of Mexico, Canada, and Europe, will get to see a partial solar eclipse. The path of totality cuts right through the country, from landfall on the coast of Oregon in the morning till departure on the coast of South Carolina in the early afternoon. If you’d like to know exactly when the partial eclipse will hit Armonk (or wherever you happen to be on the 21st!), this handy link will tell you.
Right here in Westchester, several libraries are hosting eclipse programs. Here’s a handy link provided by Cheryl Berent. It shows you how to make a pinhole camera so you can view the eclipse safely.
Of course, you can also buy special glasses for eclipse viewing. Not all glasses for sale are safe. Here’s a link that can help you get safe ones.
Please note: not all libraries have eclipse glasses. Here is a list of those who do. The glasses are for those attending the eclipse events at those libraries; please call them to inquire or register.
One last link from Cheryl; how to watch the eclipse online if you’re stuck inside!
And, of course, we’ve got books and media for you to enjoy as well! A few are listed below the cut.
