The first total solar eclipse to be seen across the contiguous United States will take place on Monday, Aug. 21, and Wellesley is getting ready for it even though we’ll only be treated to a partial eclipse in these parts (the total eclipse path stretches from Oregon to South Carolina). It’s been 38 years since a total eclipse was visible in North America, and a total eclipse across the country hasn’t been visible since 1918.
Wellesley Free Library will feature a program called Eclipses: A Weird History on Wednesday, Aug. 9 from 4:30-5:30pm featuring Meg Thacher from Smith College. The program is open to families with children of all ages, but is best for kids ages 8 and up. No registration required.
