A TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN VIEWING PARTY

Date/Time: Mon, Aug 21, 2017 9:30am - 11:00am

City of Lake Oswego Oregon Official Website

Celebrate this celestial event with us on Monday, August 21 at 9:30am at Sundeleaf Plaza! We'll have crafts, snacks, a photography how-to demo, the Blender Bike with smoothie samples, and free viewing glasses for the first 125 joining the fun!

The viewing glasses are "CE" certified which meets the transmission requirements of scale 12-16 of EN 169/1992.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end, as viewed from a given location.  For this eclipse, the longest period when the moon completely blocks the sun from any given location along the path will be about two minutes and 40 seconds. While central Oregon may have the best shot at the TOTAL eclipse, Lake Oswego will have the most fun and it will be really close to a total, about 98% total! The last time the US witnessed such an event was on July 29, 1878.
