On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible in the continental United States. This total eclipse will occur midday between noon and 1:00 pm. The sky will darken like twilight. The path of totality will only be visible on a track stretching across the United States from Oregon to South Carolina. Other areas will see a partial eclipse. No other country will get to see the total eclipse this time. Lee County Library was selected to distribute the glasses after providing programs about eclipse safety.
The program dates are June 29, 2017 and July 27, 2017 at 3:30 pm and will be advertised in the newspaper and on our website, www.leecountync.gov/library . The library will do programs about eclipses and safety. The public should attend a program to learn how to safely view an eclipse before receiving the special glasses. Looking at a solar eclipse with the naked eye or with regular sunglasses will cause eyesight damage or blindness. Like now we should not look at the sun directly. Plan to use safety eclipse glasses. For a list of the 10 best places to view the total eclipse visit https://www.greatamericaneclipse.com/best-places-to-view/ In NC, the Great Smoky Mountains is one of the top ten places.
