The Hoover-Price Planetarium will host an ‘Eclipse Watch’ on Monday, August 21 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. At 2:30 that afternoon about 90% of the Sun’s disk will be hidden behind the Moon, and specially equipped telescopes will be available for the public to witness this rare event. Eclipse glasses will be available for purchase (on that day only) for $1 each.
You would have to drive 6 hours west to Indiana to view the total eclipse; since you should never look at the Sun outside of the total phase of an eclipse, it is even more important that you have appropriate eye protection and telescopes here in Canton. Join us on the Monument Plaza that day to safely learn more about the Sun, the Moon and eclipses.
