CSU Michael Schwartz Library will host a Partial Eclipse Viewing on the CSU Plaza near Rhodes Tower on Monday, August 21, 2017 from 2:00 - 3:00 pm. The partial eclipse begins at 1:06 pm and ends at 3:51 pm. The maximum partial eclipse is at 2:30 pm.

The Library has a very limited supply of free Eclipse Glasses for the community to use and share. The glasses are verified to be compliant with the ISO 12312-2:2015 international safety standard.

Visit the Library's Eclipse Exhibit (on the first floor) where you can see live streaming of the Eclipse Across America, from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm.

Viewing Party at Edgewater
The Cuyahoga Astronomical Association (CAA), in cooperation with Cleveland Metroparks, will host an Eclipse Watch event at Edgewater Park, on Cleveland's western Lake Erie shore, from 12:30 to 4:00 PM, Monday, August 21. The event will be free and open to the public, no reservations required, to observe the day's solar eclipse. In case of rain, the event will be canceled. More information about the Eclipse Watch.

NASA Safe Viewing message: "The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as 'eclipse glasses' or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun."

A full eclipse will be visible in Cleveland in April 2024.
