Most of you have already heard that there will be a total solar eclipse on August 21 of this year.  Yes, Virginia, Minnesota is too far north to experience totality, but we will still be able to view part of it:  About 60% of the sun will appear covered from NE Minnesota.

You can learn more about both solar and lunar eclipses @ your library.  Plenty of materials are available for you to borrow from our shelves, or you can explore the many databases that we provide you with online access to.
