The Eclipse @ HCPL

One of the perks of living in the 21st century is that we know enough about how the solar system works that we do not need to worry much about the moon actually swallowing the sun during the upcoming solar eclipse. We can just sit back, strap on our certified safe eclipse-viewing glasses and enjoy the celestial show. In case you have not heard, on August 21, there will be a total solar eclipse visible from coast to coast. Here in the Houston area, we will not get the full monty, but it will still be pretty spectacular. It has been ninety-nine years since the last one. Several Harris County Public Library branches will be hosting viewing parties on Monday, August 21. Others have programs scheduled to get you ready for the big event.
