For the first time in almost 100 years, a solar eclipse will cross the entire United States. Different parts of the United States will experience various levels of the eclipse up to and including totality in several locations. Bastrop and the surrounding areas are expecting an eclipse of around 75% and this is a great opportunity to learn more about solar eclipses and to experience this once in a lifetime event.
Bastrop State Park has planned two events in celebration of the solar eclipse. On Saturday, August 19 from 9:30-10:30 a park ranger will educate the public on what to expect during the eclipse. You will learn more about the eclipse and how to safely view it. Come back to the park on Monday, August 21 between 11:30 and 2:30 for another chance to learn about the eclipse, how it effects animal behavior and to safely view the eclipse using eclipse glasses and a telescope with a solar filter. The main event will take place around 1:10.
