Astronomy and science buffs, you're in luck this weekend. Sunday evening there will be a partial solar eclipse, and it is expected to be visible throughout most of Northeastern Wyoming. Sheridan College is hosting a special event for the occasion. Beginning at 6 pm, the public is invited to the Discovery Museum, located in the Mohn's Center. Dr. Rob Milne, a science instructor at SC, tells us what they have available for viewing the partial eclipse...
The telescope and glasses will be available from 6 to 8 pm. Milne says it is not wise to look directly at the eclipse, as it may cause damage to the eyes. Regular or polarized sunglasses will not provide sufficient protection for extended viewing. The eclipse itself will begin at 6:30 PM, with full blockage at 7:30 PM.
