Solar Eclipse Party!

Date: Monday, August 21, 2017 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Duration: 3 Hours
Location: Wolf Run Park

Join the Knox County Park District for this perhaps, once-in-a-lifetime spectacular event at Wolf Run Regional Park.  The August 21st Total Eclipse seen throughout much the United States stretching from western to eastern US will be seen as a partial eclipse to those of us in central Ohio.  This partial eclipse will certainly not disappoint as we are nearby to the path of totality, which is in Kentucky.  A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon completely blocks the sun revealing the sun's beautiful outer atmosphere known as the corona.  The last total solar eclipse visible in the continental United States occurred in 1979 and next one will not take place until 2024.  The "party" starts just as the moon shadow on the sun begins.  Party-goers will need protective eyewear in order to watch the solar eclipse party.  Park District will have some eyewear to lend.  For those who do not have protective eyewear we'll do the old "pinhole in the cardboard box trick".  It works and is also totally awesome!  Bring a bag chair and snacks to share with other participants.  Knox County Park District will provide lemonade and iced tea.
