The 2017 eclipse has come and gone. We would like to thank everyone who attended one of our workshops, watched the eclipse on our big screen or viewed the eclipse through the telescope on the lawn. We hope that you and your family had a fun safe viewing experience.
We would like to apologize to everyone who was unable to pick up the solar eclipse glasses. When we ordered the glasses last spring we did not realize how large the demand for the glasses would be. We promise to be better prepared for the 2024 eclipse which will provide over 90% coverage in BCS.
Solar Eclipse, Monday, August 21, 2017. In Bryan/College Station, about 3/4 of the sun will be eclipsed. Partial eclipse should begin at 11:43 a.m. Maximum eclipse is expected at 1:13 p.m. Partial eclipse should end around 2:42 p.m.
Free safe viewing glasses will be given to attendees at Mounce Library programs as long as supplies last:
- Sat., Aug. 19, 3 PM, safe viewing workshop in the upstairs meeting room – OUT OF GLASSES
WE ARE ALL OUT OF GLASSES. We will still have safe-viewing workshops and an eclipse viewing, but we have no more glasses.
