Friday, August 18 from 3-6 PM: Build Your Own Eclipse Viewer

Join us at the Hardwick Farmers’ Market at Atkins Field for a chance to build your own eclipse viewer! Please bring a shoe box, larger box, or a 4” cardboard tube and we will provide everything else needed to build your own eclipse viewer (a limited number of shoe boxes will be available if you can’t bring your own). Children under 10 must be accompanied by a parent. If you don’t have time during the market, you can pick up instructions any time the library is open.

Monday, August 21 from 1-4 PM: Eclipse Viewing at the Swinging Bridge

A partial eclipse of the sun will be visible from Hardwick during the afternoon of August 21st!


We will gather at the swinging bridge on Main Street across from the Buffalo Mountain Coop. We’ll have a telescope, special viewing glasses, and you'll have a chance to use the viewer you made at the Farmers' Market while you learn about the eclipse. The moon will begin to cover the sun at 1:24 PM. Plan to arrive before 2 so you can watch the moon’s progress across the sun and be prepared to take a look at 2:41, the darkest point, when 60% of the sun will be covered by the moon!
