On Aug. 21, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Though Ann Arbor isn’t in the path of totality (where the moon will completely cover the sun), we’ll still be able to see a partial solar eclipse – where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk. The partial eclipse begins in Ann Arbor at 1:02 p.m., with 80 percent maximum coverage at 2:26 p.m. NASA JPL Solar System Ambassador to Ann Arbor, Jennifer German, will be there to answer eclipse (and space) questions.
Join the community outside the Downtown Library, 343 S. 5th Ave. in Ann Arbor to view this spectacular celestial event. Viewing glasses will be provided. Citizens in Michigan must always wear approved eye protection to view the eclipse.
