National Seashore to Host Solar Eclipse Event on August 21

WELLFLEET – The Cape Cod National Seashore is hosting a solar eclipse event on Monday, August 21.

Join the seashore’s rangers for a special eclipse program at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham from 1:30-4 p.m.

The free program will begin with a live feed projection of the eclipse as it passes across the U.S.

Attendees can track the eclipse along the path of totality and see what a total solar eclipse looks like.

There will be children’s activities and information on what an eclipse is and how it occurs.

At 2:30, participants will head outside to view the 60 percent eclipse.

Certified eclipse viewing glasses and pinhole projectors will be provided for safe viewing.

Following the eclipse, attendees can write a note or draw a picture to include in a time capsule that will be opened during the next full solar eclipse in April 2024.
