The Frisco Historic Park & Museum, in partnership with AstroMark, will host a free pop-up astronomy event to watch the annular eclipse on Saturday, October 14, 2023, from 9:15 am – 12:00 pm in the Historic Park. The peak of the eclipse is expected to happen around 10:40 am and guests are encouraged to stop by anytime during the event to view the eclipse.
The annular eclipse, often referred to as the “Ring of Fire”, displays a bright ring around the moon, as the moon lines up directly in between Earth and the sun. This year, Summit County is located in an area where 81% of the sun will be covered. AstroMark will be providing a limited number of solar glasses, a telescope, and will be available to answer any questions during the event. Please note it is dangerous to look at the eclipse without solar safe glasses, and we encourage you to bring your own, as a limited number will be available on a first come, first served basis.
