Get some great pictures of the crescent shadows through the trees, observe plant reactivity during the eclipse, and more! They will have eclipse glasses, just bring yourself!

The Longview Public Library is another great place to view the eclipse. The Library will have free Eclipse viewing eye glasses available while supplies last. More information coming soon.

A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. People viewing the eclipse from locations where the Moon’s shadow completely covers the Sun – known as the path of totality – will experience a total solar eclipse. The sky will darken, as if it were dawn or dusk. Weather permitting, people along the path of totality will see the Sun’s corona, or outer atmosphere, which is usually obscured by the bright face of the Sun.
