About 200 people attended an Eclipse Lawn Party on Oct. 14 outside the Mabel C. Fry Public Library, 1200 Lakeshore.
All received glasses provided through a grant from SEAL (Solar Eclipse Activities for Libraries) to view the annular solar eclipse.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.
An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun’s, blocking most of the Sun’s light and causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring).
The Yukon library’s next big eclipse event will be April 8, 2024 when a total solar eclipse occurs. For more information, call (405) 354-8232.
