To celebrate the solar eclipse on Monday, Raven Radio will broadcast live special coverage from NPR. Join hosts Robin Young and Meghna Chakrabarti from 9:00am to 11:00am as they hear from eclipse chasers, scientists, first time observers and reporters across the nation.
If it’s clear, Sitkans can experience a partial solar eclipse beginning at 8:16am and ending at 10:23am, with the maximum eclipse of 60% coverage occurring at 9:17am. NASA will be offering a live video feed of the eclipse, which will be shown at the Sitka Public Library and the Sitka National Historical Park Visitor’s Center. The park will also distribute free safety viewing glasses and Eclipse Junior Ranger activity books for any kids or adults seeking to earn a unique Eclipse Jr. Ranger badge.
