See a late afternoon transit of the Moon across the Sun. The official start of the eclipse is 4:41pm and ends at sundown (6:11pm). Maximum eclipse is 4:47pm with 39% of the Sun's total area covered.
This is NOT an event for unprotected eyes! Members of the Astronomical Society of Eastern Missouri will be available with special filters allowing us to view the eclipse. If you want to view the event but cannot attend the gathering at the park, use a #14 welders glass to view the Sun through or construct a pinhole projection box.
FYI: Dave and I attended the transit of Venus across the Sun at this park a few years ago. It was a crowded event but there were PLENTY of different viewing stations available.
