You’re Invited to a Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

On August 21, the Earth will cross the shadow of the moon, creating a total solar eclipse. The Southlake Library is inviting you and your family to a viewing party.

Eclipses happen about every six months, but this one is special. For the first time in almost 40 years, the path of the moon’s shadow passes through the continental United States.

This is a once in a lifetime event that you don’t want to miss. So grab the kids and join the Southlake Library for a really fun and educational experience. The solar eclipse viewing party will be held at Family Park located in front of Town Hall on August 21 at 12:30 p.m.

The Library staff is going all out to make it a really memorable experience for the whole family. They will have 125* solar eclipse glasses to use for viewing. Plus, moms, dads and kids will be treated to moon pies and sun chips.

Someone will be on hand to offer safety tips for viewing the eclipse. If you are not able to attend Southlake’s viewing party, but plan to view it, NASA has some great safety tips that you can check out by visiting their website.

(*editors note: 125 glasses are now available.)
