Events & Information
Upcoming Events at the
Sheep Hill Astronomical Association
Join us on August 21 at the library for an eclipse event
presented by Sheep Hill Astronomical Association
Date: Monday, August 21st
Time: 1:30pm – 4:00pm
Where: Boonton Holmes Library, 621 Main Street
What is happening:
A solar eclipse (when the moon passes directly between the earth and the sun) will be occurring over the U.S. for the first time since 1991. From Boonton, NJ, we will see a partial eclipse, with up to 72% of the sun being blocked by the moon at the peak of the event (approx. 2:45pm). While it
is dangerous to look directly at the sun at any point during a partial solar eclipse, we will have properly filtered telescopes set up for guests to safely view the “crescent sun”. Pretty cool, eh?
This event is subject to clear skies.
It will be cancelled if it is overcast or raining.
