Solar Eclipse

 Monday, August 21, Solar Eclipse Viewing Event, from 1 p.m to 3:30 p.m.

The Leesburg Public Library is the City of Leesburg’s meeting place to enjoy a rare Solar Eclipse Viewing on Monday, August 21, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

At 1 p.m. adults are invited to watch a film documentary “Chasing Shadows”. This film is a stunning and beautiful look at how professional astronomer and photographer, Geoff Sims, travels the world to photograph solar eclipses. The film is one hour long.

At 1 p.m. children of all ages can spend time in the Mobile Art Studio hosted by the Leesburg Center for the Arts. The sun and the eclipse phenomenon will inspire the art projects.

At 2:15 p.m. everyone will gather outside to watch the peak of the eclipse. Here in central Florida we will have approximately 82% coverage of the sun. This solar eclipse event will be a lifetime memory for everyone!

The library will give out free eclipse viewing glasses (while supplies last) starting at 1:00 on the day of the event.
