Viewing a Solar Ecli
"Viewing a Solar Eclipse Safely" with Jon Wallace
Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2PM
On Wednesday, August 2 at 2pm, Jon Wallace  (FCL's own "science-guy") returns to the library for a talk on the Sun and how to observe it safely during the eclipse later in the month.

On August 21, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk. For more info go to the website created by NASA to a guide to this amazing event.  It is https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/

Before retiring to Maine, Jon Wallace was an award-winning high school science teacher in Meriden, Connecticut for over 32 years. He is past president of the Connecticut Association of Physics Teachers and was an instructor in Wesleyan University’s Project ASTRO program. He has managed the Naugatuck Valley Community College observatory and run many astronomy classes and training sessions throughout Connecticut.  He was on the Board of the Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers (SARA), and is currently the Education Coordinator for SARA helping to develop teaching materials for SARA and the NRAO (National Radio Astronomy Observatory)
 
Free Thursday movie -The Zookeeper’s Wife (2017) - starring Jessica Chastain & Johan Heldenbergh
Thursday, Aug. 17, 1:00 PM
Directed by Niki Caro and released in 2017, this film stars Jessica Chastain and Johan Heldenbergh.

The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina ?abi?ska (portrayed by two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan ?abi?ski (Johan Heldenbergh of "The Broken Circle Breakdown"), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned - and forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl of "Captain America: Civil War"). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance - and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.

All Thursday films are closed-caption.

Freeport Community Library welcomes the general public and library members alike to this fun film free-of-charge. Rated PG-13, it is 126 minutes in length. For directions to the library go to: www.freeportlibrary.com or call (207)865-3307.
