Welcome to the Library!

 

**Star Party**

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. @ your library

Have you ever wanted to view the night sky through a telescope? And even better, learn to operate the telescope yourself? If so, you don’t want to miss this opportunity for a FREE training and telescope viewing session provided by amateur astronomers from the St. Louis Astronomical Society.
 
The evening program will begin inside with hands on training focused on teaching you and your family how to operate and use the library telescopes now available in your public library. Guests will learn how to unpack the telescope, get the telescope ready for operation, find objects in the night sky and about telescope safety issues. Using the telescope is surprisingly easy and fun for the whole family.
 
Weather permitting, the class will adjourn outside and apply what they have learned to find objects in the night sky. Don't plan to go home early because you will not want to leave once you get started.

In 2017:

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will occur, and it will see the Moon’s shadow pass across the Pacific Ocean onto the coast of Oregon, and then proceed to fall across all of North America (as Earth rotates), finally entering the Atlantic Ocean on the South Carolina border. This will be the first total solar eclipse to touch the United States since the 1990s (when one occurred on Hawaii), and the first to cover it coast-to-coast since 1918!

In Missouri the eclipse path will start in St. Joseph, pass over Columbia and Jefferson City, De Soto and finally head into Illinois at Cape Girardeau. This unique event will provide Missouri a unique chance to host a series eclipse watching parties and puts our state on display.
