Observing the Solar Eclipse: NASA’s Tips

Ready for the eclipse on Monday? You can learn more about the eclipse with NASA eclipse resources on display in the Government Publications Department on the 5th floor of Harold Washington Library Center.

Find out about the spacecraft, balloons and ground-based teams that will observe the total solar eclipse.

NASA will live stream the eclipse from Carbondale and other locations across the country.

The agency also has tips on safely viewing the eclipse and instructions for making a pinhole projector to view the eclipse.

Here at CPL, we'll have viewing parties across the city on Monday. We also recommend books and resources for kids and popular science books for adults.
