The eclipse is coming this Monday! Everyone is asking: what if I don’t have eclipse glasses???

No problem! You can enjoy the big event by using household objects you can pull off your kitchen shelf or make in a jiffy right at home! Check out this Science Friday article for details.

Better yet, join us, weather permitting, at the Main Library in Norristown on Monday, August 21 between 1:30 and 4 PM, where we’ll be using projection techniques like these to safely observe Eclipse 2017! We’d love to see you there!

The library does not have eclipse glasses, and we will not be using them at our event.
