Details

Please read notes below:

Join us for the 2017 Great American Eclipse! The entire continental US will have a view of a partial eclipse.

We'll have telescopes with special solar filters.

[We're anticipating a VERY large crowd. Also we'd like to minimize any disruption to the school next to the Houge Park parking lot.]

Notes:

- Please park on the street. There are 5 handicap parking spaces available.

- Do not ever look at the sun without a proper solar filter. It takes less than 1 second to permanently destroy your eye(s).

- This is a "Partial" Solar Eclipse meaning it will go from 0% to 75% back to 0%, you do not need to stay for the entire event.

- I believe that the Discovery Channel with have a live television event during the entire eclipse.

- NASA is suppose to be live-streaming the event as well. (for those who do not want to deal with the parking).

- Restrooms are located in Bldg # 2 (farthest building from tennis courts).

- Be safe, be courteous, have fun.
