Observing the Annular Solar Eclipse at Hibernia County Park

Observing the Annular Solar Eclipse at Hibernia County Park In-Person

On Saturday, October 14, 2023, an annular solar eclipse will cross North, Central, and South America. An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon covers the Sun's center, leaving the Sun's visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire” or annulus around the Moon.

The Chester County Library is hosting this event along with Chester County Parks and Preservation, NASA Solar System Ambassador Don Miller, The Chester County Astronomical Society and Timmy Telescope in the Fiddler’s Field at Hibernia County Park, 1 Park Rd. Coatesville, PA.

Bring friends and family and enjoy observing the eclipse with the help and expertise of local astronomy enthusiasts. Learn about eclipses and try out activities that will help to better understand them. A limited number of solar observation glasses will be available.

Participate in a 20 minute "Sun Salutation" at 12:30 pm or a 20 minute "Moon Salutation" at 2:00 PM with Heather from 2 Crows and a Raven Yoga.

Please remember to dress appropriately for the weather and park location. Chairs and/or blanket for comfort, sunscreen and water.

This event will be cancelled in the event of bad weather. Check the library website or call the library if the weather conditions are questionable.

Registration is requested. Walk-ins welcome. Registration will close 2 hours prior to the scheduled start time of the event.
