Come to Riverfront Park in Apalachicola on Saturday, August 19 at 10 AM to get your FREE eclipse glasses and hear Dr. Elizabeth Perkins’ presentation about facts and myths surrounding eclipses. Important eclipse information will be available as well as moon pies!
Don’t miss the eclipse viewing party on Monday, August 21 at Riverfront Park, beginning at 2 pm. Celestial fun for all ages will include stellar music, ice cold moon juice and solar snacks! The event is sponsored by the Apalachicola Chamber of Commerce, Apalachicola Main Street and the Apalachicola Margaret Key Library. Our DJ will be spinning celestial-themed tunes.
Safety is paramount! Read this article from FSU News on safely viewing the eclipse. Looking directly at the eclipse without proper use of safety glasses can cause permanent eye damage. Because the outer rim of the sun will still be exposed during the eclipse at our latitude, this is especially important.
