Find Out When the Eclipse Will Begin From Your Exact Location
Here is an interactive website that shows the exact time of the eclipse for your area. I clicked on the football field at the Sargent School and came up with the following times. The times listed are in Universal Time. To convert to Central Time, subtract 5 hours.
So . . . the partial eclipse will officially start at 11:32:40.2. The total eclipse will be from 12:56:56.7 till 12:57:52.5, and the partial eclipse will end at 14:23:47.0. Set your alarm and plan to meet us for a party at the Sargent football field on August 21. Lunch will be served at noon with a freewill donation. The library will provide free eclipse glasses at the event. All you need to bring is a lawn chair.
If you will be out of town for the eclipse, you can still get free eclipse glasses at the Sargent Library.
