Looking forward to the solar eclipse? What if we said that you could watch it with a goat? Join us on Monday, August 21 from 12:30 – 4:00 p.m. for an experience like no other! Gather your family, bring a chair or blanket, and watch the eclipse with a farmyard friend. We will have popcorn, water and glow-in-the-dark t-shirts for sale, and plenty of outdoor spaces to enjoy the show!
Due to the interest in the event and excitement surrounding the partial eclipse, we strongly recommend bringing your own pair of safety glasses if you are able to purchase them prior to the event. Please note: in order to watch the eclipse, you must be wearing protective eyewear.
The eclipse will begin around 1:00 p.m. and will continue until around 3:50 p.m.
A. Eclipse Glasses are recommended for looking at the sun.
However, if you are unable to find eclipse glasses, you could make a pinhole eclipse projector. (There are many different ways to do this, and you can find information on the internet. We posted a video tutorial in the Facebook event page.)
We have a pinhole eclipse viewer available at the front desk, and they will also be available the day of the event. (You may also download the pinhole eclipse viewer here.)
Sunglasses are not safe for solar eclipse viewing.
