ORANGE COUNTY, N.Y. – Ready or not, the much ballyhooed solar eclipse will "visit" Orange County just before 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 21.
If you're not sure where – or how – to get in on the solar eclipse craze, we're here to help.
Several libraries in the County will be hosting events, including:
- Cornwall Public Library
- Goshen Public Library
- Port Jervis Free Library
- Wallkill Public Library
If you're looking for a more intimate experience with the solar eclipse, make sure to do it safely. Make sure any glasses you use to view the eclipse have the designation ISO 12312-2. They should also have a manufacturer's name on them.
Orange County residents should expect to see roughly 70-75 percent of the total eclipse with the peak occurring around 2:44 p.m.
