Annular eclipses occur every year or two. This type of eclipse is often referred to as the “Ring of Fire” eclipse. The flaming ring of the Sun surrounding the Moon is named due to the apparent position of the Moon in relation to the Sun. Each type of eclipse, total, partial, or annular, is determined by the Moon’s relation to the sun. This year, Summit County is located in a zone that means around 81% of the sun will be covered up!
Join the Frisco Historic Park & Museum and AstroMark for a free astronomy pop-up event in the park. There will be a limited number of solar eclipse viewing glasses available, a solar telescope, and an expert who can answer all of your questions.
Please note that it is dangerous to look at the eclipse without solar safe glasses. We encourage you to bring your own solar safe glasses, only a limited number of glasses will be provided on a first come, first serve basis.
The pop-up begins at 9:15am and runs until 12:00pm or when the eclipse is completed. Peak eclipse time is around 10:40am. Drop by at any point during the event time to learn more and watch the eclipse from the beautiful Historic Park.
This event is free, all you need is your sense of wonder!
