Round Rock Public Library, in partnership with the Space Science Institute, invites you to experience the solar eclipse over Round Rock on August 21, 2017. The party will be in Prete Plaza while the moon’s shadow will move across our area, noon – 2 p.m. Join us for as much of the event as you’d like.
We’ll have a variety of activities to share to increase your enjoyment of the event. We know you’ll be talking about this event long into the future, and we’d love to experience it as a community.
Safe, solar viewing glasses will be available. **NEVER look directly at the sun without proper viewing equipment.**
About the eclipse
During the eclipse, the moon will pass directly between the Earth and the sun, casting the Moon’s shadow on the continental U.S. from coast to coast for more than 90 minutes. This is the first total solar eclipse visible over the US since 1981 and the first since 1918 to be seen coast to coast.
To prepare for the eclipse, the Library’s summer displays include information about solar eclipses, as well as a session of hands-on activities Saturday, July 29.
