Solar Eclipse Viewing Party!

Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, 2:30 p.m.

Join us on Monday, August 21 to view the partial solar eclipse of the sun! Here in DC we will experience an 81% eclipse at 2:42 p.m. Though not a total eclipse, this event will be incredibly special! Those who attend the event will receive a free pair of eclipse glasses to view the eclipse with us in our garden. This event is for the whole family--all are welcome. We will have limited supplies of glasses, so only those who attend our event can use them.

We will meet at 2:30 p.m. and will give out glasses, while supplies last. After the eclipse we will enjoy treats, have a craft for younger participants, and talk about what we saw!

This event is made possible by a generous donation from the Friends of the Southeast Library. 

Proper safety glasses must be worn when viewing the eclipse. If you can not join us for the event, please visit for more information and links to reputable vendors to purchase glasses. DO NOT use regular sunglasses when viewing the eclipse as the protection is not strong enough.
