Solar Eclipse Event

Free; just drop in

All Ages

Volunteers from the Westport Observatory will be on hand with telescopes and gear to safely view the partial solar eclipse.

The eclipse peaks at 3:26 pm, when the sun will be 90.7% obscured. The safest way to view the eclipse is with equipment the Westport Astronomical Society (WAS) and The Westport Library will provide, Other than telescopes, WAS will have other ways to safely view one of the solar system's most spectacular and rare events,

The Library will have a limited supply of individual eclipse glasses to distribute to patrons. The next partial solar eclipses occur in 2028 and 2029, but those will not obscure the sun anywhere to the degree of what we will see in April. For that, you will have to wait until the total solar eclipse on the morning of May 1, 2079!
