Though the full total solar eclipse next Monday (August 21) is visible along a narrow path from Oregon to South Carolina, Westporters can enjoy 70% of the event.
The Westport Astronomical Society is opening the Rolnick Observatory (182 Bayberry Lane) to anyone who wants to watch. They’ll provide solar telescopes and safety glasses. Experts will be on hand to provide commentary and insights.
The eclipse runs from 1:24 p.m. to 4 p.m. The maximum eclipse is at 2:45 p.m.
The Astronomical Society is not responsible for clouds.
