NASA Total Solar Eclipse Livestream Viewing Party

Date: Aug 21, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: Library of The Chathams
214 Main Street, Chatham, 07928

On Monday, August 21, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. Here in New Jersey, we will see a partial solar eclipse of just over 70%.

Join us between 12 noon and 4 pm as we stream the live NASA TV broadcast that will carry the eclipse from coast to coast.  They will show unique vantage points on the ground and from aircraft and spacecraft, including the International Space Station. Coverage will be featured during the live four-hour broadcast Eclipse Across America: Through the Eyes of NASA.

We do not have any more eclipse glasses to hand out, but we will have a few pairs on hand to share for those who wish to view the partial eclipse in person.  We will have some small activities for kids, as well as light refreshments for all (eclipse themed of course!).

From NASA’s website: Programming begins at noon EDT with a preview show hosted from Charleston, South Carolina. The main show begins at 1 pm and will cover the path of totality the eclipse will take across the United States, from Oregon to South Carolina. The program will feature views from NASA research aircraft, high-altitude balloons, satellites and specially-modified telescopes. It also will include live reports from Charleston, as well as from Salem, Oregon; Idaho Falls, Idaho; Beatrice, Nebraska; Jefferson City, Missouri; Carbondale, Illinois; Hopkinsville, Kentucky; and Clarksville, Tennessee.
