This is the first total eclipse to be visible in the U.S. since 1978. The community is invited to a free “Eclipse Viewing Party” at the Pottsboro Library, located at 104 N. Main, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on August 21. Participants can view the partial eclipse outdoors using free safety glasses provided by STAR_net, or relax indoors and watch live video of the total eclipse as it passes over North America. On August 21, 2017, the moon will pass between Earth and the sun in a total solar eclipse that will be visible on a path from Oregon to South Carolina across the continental United States.
