Eclipse Viewing Party at STLCC-Wildwood
Start Date: 8/21/2017Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 8/21/2017End Time: 1:30 PM
Event Description
You're invited to STLCC-Wildwood to view the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. 

Safe viewing glasses will be provided. This event will also include freezer pops, music and other fun activities.

Participants should plan to meet outside on the front lawn at 12:30 p.m. 

About the Eclipse:

On Aug. 21, just after 1 p.m., the Moon will get between the Earth and the Sun and cast a shadow over Earth. Darkness will fall in the middle of the day. Planets and stars may appear. The temperature could drop up to 5 degrees Fahrenheit.  

Safe Viewing Tips:
The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun.

Stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses or solar viewer before looking up at the bright sun. After looking at the sun, turn away and remove your filter — do not remove it while looking at the sun.

Do not look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical device.

Do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewer — the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye(s), causing serious injury.

Remove your solar filter only when the moon completely covers the sun’s bright face and it suddenly gets quite dark.

Experience totality, then, as soon as the bright sun begins to reappear, replace your solar viewer to look at the remaining partial phases.

If you normally wear eyeglasses, keep them on. Put your eclipse glasses on over them, or hold your handheld viewer in front of them.
