Solar Eclipse Party at Stoneybrook!

Solar Eclipse Party at Stoneybrook!

We will be near the center of the path for this Total Solar Eclipse and it will get dark for just over 2 and a half minutes. (the longest nationwide is 2 minutes 41 seconds).  Astronomers prize the associated corona views. Our location is a prime viewing spot – but like all locations is weather dependent. SEE BELOW

A VOS gathering at the gazebo is planned including a novel pinhole mirror projection arrangement for viewing, an educational video, “eclipse music” and more.  A limited number of special solar viewing glasses are provided for neighbors registered by August 19 at*  Partial eclipse begins about NOON and the total eclipse peaks shortly after 1:27 PM with partial eclipse again until 3:00 PM – we’ll do the same. Bring a loaded cooler, some snacks, (a canopy if you have one) and a blanket or chair.
