It's the first total solar eclipse over the U.S. in 38 years, come and celebrate! Please join the Lane County Medical Society, the Eugene Family YMCA, and Oregon Eye Consultants for a free eclipse viewing party at the YMCA Field for a morning of science and fun. Oregon Eye Consultants will have safety-approved glasses available for free, and volunteers will be on hand to explain the science behind eclipses and how to view them safely. All ages are welcome. Music and refreshments provided. Please note that while Eugene is not in the path of totality, we'll still experience a near-total eclipse, with 98 to 99 percent of the sun covered by the moon. The eclipse starts around 10:15 am, so make sure to arrive early to get your glasses and view the event safely.
