On August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the sun will be visible in the Continental U.S., including here in Tidewater.
Slover library is throwing a bash to share in the celestial amazingness. All lovers of momentous cosmic events are invited.
Called the “astronomical event of the decade,” Hampton Roads residents will see the moon blocking about 90% of the sun. We won’t have another occurrence like this in Hampton Roads until 2024, according to reporting by the Pilot.
Viewing glasses will be provided by Slover at no charge.
The party happens Monday, August 21, from 1 pm to 3:30pm.
