A program called “Eclipses Future” by Derryl Barr, a self-proclaimed eclipse chaser and former North Platte teacher, will be given at the North Platte Public Library at noon  Friday, July 21. 

The Eclipse will occur one month later.

“Eclipses Future” is the final presentation in a three-part series on solar eclipses leading up to the total eclipse on Aug. 21, which will be observable from the North Platte area. 

This final program focuses on the eclipse phenomenon itself, the types of eclipses and their cause and frequency.

But most importantly, the primary focus will be on how to safely observe and experience the total solar eclipse for persons in a 70-mile-wide swath across Nebraska, who have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stand in the shadow of the moon and marvel at what is frequently called “Nature’s grandest spectacle.”

Call the library to reserve a free seat at 535-8036, ext. 3310. Attendance is limited to 70 people.  Iced tea and water will be provided.  There will a limited number of solar eclipse glasses available -- one per attendee. The library suggests people bring an envelope for the glasses so they won’t get bent or damaged.
