Free Viewing Glasses for First 100 People!
Join the Chester County Library at Exton Park (132 Church Farm Lane) in Exton, PA on August 21st for a once in a lifetime solar eclipse viewing event! A Solar Telescope will be on hand and viewing glasses will be given to the first 100 people attending. On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible in the continental United States for the first time in almost 40 years. A total eclipse is when the Sun is completely hidden by the Moon, the sky becomes dark, and the Sun's faint atmosphere (corona) becomes visible, looking like a beautiful halo. This total eclipse will only be visible on a narrow track stretching across the United States from Oregon to South Carolina. Here in Chester County, we can expect to see about 70% of the sun eclipsed by the moon. The U.S will not experience another total solar eclipse until 2024.
