For the first time in 99 years, a total solar eclipse will cross the entire nation on Monday, August 21, 2017. Over the course of 100 minutes, 14 states across the United States will experience over two minutes of darkness in the middle of the day. Additionally, a partial eclipse will be viewable across the continent. The peak local viewing time in Chester County for the eclipse will be at 2:44 p.m.
Many of our libraries have programs planned. However, due to the tremendous response, all programs with pre-registration are full and no additional eclipse glasses are available.
If it’s a cloudy day:
NASA TV as well as many other local and national TV stations will be live streaming the experience, so even if it is cloudy in our area you don’t have to miss out on the event happening across the country: https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/eclipse-live-stream.
