Monday, August 21 at 12 PM - 3 PM @ Frontier Community College
Frontier Community College is hosting a Solar Eclipse Safe Viewing Event on August 21, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
With the Fairfield area expected to experience 98% coverage of the total eclipse, Frontier Community College is inviting the public to join this safe viewing event. Eclipse glasses will be available for safe direct viewing of the eclipse, while pegboards and other devices will be on hand for indirect viewing.
Since the moon will be covering the sun, the temperature will be changing through the eclipse. Temperature measurements will be taken throughout, which will be a good project for math and science classes.
Participants are invited to “Dance Along the Path” during the eclipse. NASA has asked eclipse viewers to share their videos on social media by using #EclipseDance. FCC will be recording and sharing videos of dancers during the event.
Those attending can bring their lawn chairs to enjoy the eclipse. The public is invited, as well as area grade school or high school classes.
For more information, contact Frontier Community College at (618) 842-3711.
