Roosevelt, AZ- Join the Miami Memorial Library and Tonto National Monument to participate in the Great American Eclipse on August 21, 2017. During this national event, the shadow of the moon will sweep across the United States in a narrow band from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean in a spectacle that hasn't occurred in decades. In fact, the last total solar eclipse for the United States was nearly 40 years ago. The rest of the U.S. and North America will see a partial eclipse, with the Moon covering up only part of the Sun.

This will be a great opportunity for our local community to celebrate science, with fun, hands-on and multimedia activities, culminating in the eclipse event on August 21, 2017. Programs are free and open to the public.
