Eclipse 2017: Don't get left out of the dark

Events planned around North Dakota to celebrate the solar eclipse

 

 Don’t get left out of the dark when the solar eclipse clips North Dakota on August 21. The state won’t go completely black as it will to the south, but North Dakota is expecting about 84 percent coverage beginning at 11:32 a.m., central time, peaking at 12:52 and ending at 2:14. If Mother Nature plays nice and skies are clear, people in North Dakota should be treated to a great show – one that comes around every 40 years or so.

Several events are planned to coincide with the eclipse. Consider sharing the experience with friends and others at one of the following activities:

Solar Eclipse Program at the Grand Forks Public Library. Hosted by the Northern Sky Astronomical Society, Grand Forks

Solar Eclipse Viewing Party at the Gateway to Science, Bismarck

Solar Eclipse Day at Lake Region Heritage Center, Devils Lake

Eclipse Viewing Party – Red River Zoo, Fargo

Eclipse Event at Ward County Library, Minot

Solar Eclipse Event at Underwood Public Library, Underwood
