Eclipse Watch Parties – Downtown

Downtown Lebanon was absolutely packed on Eclipse Day! The celebration was 80s themed, and dubbed “Total Eclipse in The Heart.”

Eclipse Watch Parties – Memorial Park

Downtown wasn’t the only crowded place in Lebanon on April 8th, 2024. The Memorial Park set a scene straight out of a sardine can. Not only did the park experience astronomical totality, but also a totality of fun!

Eclipse Watch Parties – Abner Longley Park

Abner Longley Park was packed on April 8th. Out-of-town visitors as well as Lebanon residents enjoyed the event from the park’s beautiful wide open spaces.

The Path

of Totality //

Only 43 million people — 0.5% of the world’s population — live in what is known as the path of totality, meaning they will experience this total solar eclipse. There’s no comparison between a partial solar eclipse and total solar eclipse. 

People who have experienced the latter often say it is a deeply moving event that binds the observer to the Cosmos.
