Thank you for your interest in joining libraries around the country in
providing programming for the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse.  Funded by the *NASA@
My Library
<http://www.starnetlibraries.org/portfolio-items/nasa-my-library/>*
 program, *STAR_Net* has developed this resource center to assist your
library in creating promotion and program materials for your eclipse event
that include images, videos, animations, posters, artwork and a variety of
outside resources such as FAQs and science activities related to Sun-Earth
connections.



On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible in
the continental United States for the first time in almost 40 years. A
total eclipse is when the Sun is completely hidden by the Moon, the sky
becomes dark, and the Sun’s faint atmosphere (corona) becomes
visible—looking like a beautiful halo (Figure 1). This total eclipse will
only be visible on a narrow track stretching across the United States from
Oregon to South Carolina. No other country will get to see the total
eclipse this time. The rest of the United States and other parts of North
and Central America will see a partial eclipse, in which the Moon covers
only a portion of the Sun. A partial eclipse is interesting, but nowhere
near as awe-inspiring and memorable as a total eclipse. A partial eclipse
is also dangerous to look at without something to protect your eyes from
the Sun’s damaging rays.
