We're Eclipse Event Ready, Are You?

For the first time in 65 years, a total solar eclipse will pass over New Hampshire, and Dartmouth is abuzz! The eclipse transition will be visible here from about 2:15pm, with 98% totality predicted at 3:28pm. Though, local weather may be a gamble.

Tricia Martone, Research & Learning Librarian STEM, collated an excellent collection of resources to expand your eclipse knowledge.

From Bonnie Tyler’s pop hit song, “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” to fantastic documentaries, reads, and guides on viewing the April 8 solar eclipse safely, the “ECLIPSE! Research Guide” is here!

In each tab, you can access resources from the Dartmouth Libraries about the science, history, and social context of eclipses.

Want to take your eclipse knowledge to the next level? Watch the video below, "The Great American Eclipse," which is available on PBS and features Rauner Special Collections Library.

Enjoy and happy, safe viewing!
