There goes the sun

WARWICK — On Monday, August 21, the Albert Wisner Public Library invited everyone to view the eclipse of the sun.
The path, where the moon completely covered the sun traveled from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.
However observers in Warwick, which was outside this path, could still see a partial solar eclipse, where the moon only covers part of the sun's disk.
West Milford resident Vincas Liaukus provided the telescope.
The last time the contiguous United States saw a total eclipse was in 1979.
If you missed Monday's event, there’s another chance on April 8, 2024. That’s when the next total solar eclipse will travel a different path from Texas to Maine, with portions of Mexico and eastern Canada included.
