Solar Eclipse Viewing Event

Join us for the solar event of the year on Monday, August 21. UPDATE: All glasses are gone. Thank you for the overwhelming response!
Beginning at 11:30 am, we will have a limited number of free eclipse glasses available on a first come, first served basis. You must sign a waiver and provide identification to receive the glasses. Children under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The glasses are ISO 12312-2 certified and made by American Paper Optics and Rainbow Symphony; both are NASA-approved suppliers of solar eclipse glasses. Thank you to Michiana Astronomical Society for donating the Rainbow Symphony glasses.
