Partial Solar Eclipse!

Monday, April 8 @ 3:28 pm 3:35 pm

Get ready to witness this historic celestial spectacle on Monday, April 8! A partial solar eclipse will be visible in Camden (weather permitting) from 2:10 – 4:40 p.m., with the peak from 3:28 – 3:35 p.m.

While this event won’t plunge Camden into complete darkness, it promises a sight to behold as the moon partially obscures the sun and shifts the cast of the light around us. The openness of Harbor Park is a great place to view from.

Solar eclipses occur when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth, casting a shadow on our planet. During a partial eclipse, only a portion of the sun is obscured, but it still creates an awe-inspiring spectacle.

You can also drive a couple hours north to experience the drama of totality. Use NASA’s interactive eclipse explorer map to view which Maine towns are in the path.

Whether you join us in Camden or travel north, grab your eclipse glasses, gather your friends and family, and join the millions of others who will be watching this historic event. See you under the eclipse!
