Across N.H., Excited Views of Rare Event in the Sky

Aug 21, 2017

Across New Hampshire, people gathered with special glasses, hand-made viewers, and solar telescopes to get a safe view of today's eclipse.

At the Children's Museum of New Hampshire in Dover, Ryan Atherton noticed that it looked like "someone took a bite out of the sun." Though New Hampshire wasn't in the path of totality, not this time, even the partial view inspired a lot of people to get out and come up with their own ways of describing what they saw. 

We heard from attendees of watch parties at the Montshire Museum in Norwich, Vermont; from inside the observatory on the campus of St. Paul’s School in Concord; and from the Bethlehem Public Library.
