More than 70 neighbors responded to Dotty Calabrese’s invitation to view the Great American Eclipse in Thaddeus Park. Dotty set up her telescope with a sun filter on August 21, 2017, so we could look directly at the sun. Tim Slattery and Ken Wallace also brought telescopes. Dotty had bought 75 pairs of eclipse glasses well in advance. These proved to be not quite enough for all, but everyone was willing to share during what turned out to be a very festive neighborhood event.
Helene Gsell and Ken Wallace shared their photos.
