On Monday, August 21, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. While Bismarck isn't within the trajectory of the total eclipse path, we will still be able to see a partial eclipse. The Bismarck Public Library has an astronomy display with solar eclipse information provided by NASA.
On Saturday, August 12 at 2:00pm in meeting Room C join Curt Olson, Meteorologist for KFYR-TV, for a presentation and discussion about the upcoming solar eclipse occurring on August 21. Participants will learn about what a solar eclipse is, how it occurs, and the difference between a solar and lunar eclipse.
On Thursday, August 17 at 7:30pm in Meeting Room B join Dr. Tony Musumba, Professor of Physics at Bismarck State College, to learn about the upcoming solar eclipse occurring on August 21. Dr. Musumba will discuss his upcoming road trip to Wyoming and his plan to view the total solar eclipse. Participants will also take part in an interactive discussion about what a solar eclipse is, how it occurs, and the difference between a solar and lunar eclipse.
Join us on Monday, August 21 at 11:00 am in Meeting Room A for a showing of the cult classic movie/musical "Little Shop of Horrors"! After the movie you are welcome to view the eclipse on the library lawn.
