The last session will be held Aug. 21, the day a partial solar eclipse will be visible in western Newfoundland.
While some parts of the United States will get to see a total eclipse of the sun by the moon, the sun will only be partially obscured in other parts of the world.
By around 4 p.m., the southwestern half of the island of Newfoundland will be experience around 30 to 40 percent coverage of the moon’s shadow as it passes in front of the sun.
At 3 p.m., Grenfell will host a short introductory lecture in AS 2026, followed by the narrated viewing of the eclipse. Admission is free and no registration is required.
Special eclipse glasses will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Grenfell Campus observatory has held several public observation sessions this summer, with daytime observation of the sun and nighttime viewing of the moon, Jupiter and Saturn, with a total of over 100 people attending.
