Citizens of Princeton gathered in Palmer Square to view and celebrate the first total solar eclipse visible on mainland US soil since 1979. The event was co-sponsored by the Princeton Public Library and Princeton University’s Astrophysical Science department. While the library was offering cookies, watermelon, and solar glasses, the Astrophysical Science department provided eclipse education, answered questions, and brought a telescope for the general public to look through.
