Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st

Posted by Chris in Tampa on 8/11/2017, 9:08 pm

Blog post from Bob Henson:

Map of libraries that may have free glasses:

"We have distributed over 2 million free eclipse glasses and 4,000 education kits to over 7,000 library locations (public libraries, state libraries, book mobiles, tribal libraries). This represents nearly one half of all libraries in the country."

You may want to call to see if they have some left. They may only distribute them during special programs and I'm sure many are already out.

This is an interesting little animation to see what the eclipse might be like. Enter your location:

If you prefer to embed something manually for any of these sites, you can also do that. For Ustream, you can only embed live videos manually rather than using the above feature. No other sites are currently supported.

If you embed something manually please be aware that due to the security restrictions on some browsers manually entering embedded code may not allow it to appear correctly when you view it. However, after you post the message it will work properly. This will not be a problem if you use the above feature to add embedded content.
