Starting in Oregon; and continuing through the Midwest, Fort Wayne will experience it's peak at 85% coverage at about 2:25pm on that Monday afternoon. What is a solar eclipse? It is a lineup of the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth. Due to the Moon's position between the Sun and the Earth, a shadow will be cast on our planet that will be visible throughout North America. Since Fort Wayne will be in the light part of that shadow, or the penumbra, we will see a partial eclipse which will be a prominent contrast to the skies before and after this historical event. </span></p> <p> </p> <p><span>We will be gathering at the Allen County Public Library's main downtown plaza from noon to 3pm. Admittance will be free for everyone. The Fort Wayne Astronomical Society will be bringing telescopes with sun filters and projectors to help you see the event up close. There will also be food trucks (Bravas, Ragin Cajun) located at the Wayne St. parking lot so you can eat and eclipse. To safely view this event, eye protection is a must. Eclipse glasses will be provided on a first come first serve basis on the library plaza. </span></p> 900 Library Plaza Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac
