Solar Eclipse Viewing!!

comments Comments Off on Solar Eclipse Viewing!!
By , August 16, 2017 8:28 am

A total solar eclipse will occur on Monday, August 21, 2017! In Wisconsin, we will only experience a partial solar eclipse, but the Northern Cross Science Foundation will have a viewing event at Harrington Beach State Park from 11am – 3pm. They will have viewing glasses for those who participate in the event.

Although a partial solar eclipse is an interesting phenomenon, we heartily encourage everyone to experience “totality” — where the Moon completely covers the Sun — if at all possible. Only totality will:

-darken the sky significantly
-reveal the outer atmosphere of the Sun (known as the corona)
-show flame-like structures coming off the edge of the Sun (known as prominences)
-drop the air temperature noticeably and still the air
-cause animals to behave strangely
-provide a 360-degree sunset experience

The path of totality is a band approximately 70 miles wide that stretches from Salem, OR to Charleston, SC.  Explore what’s out there and if you have questions or would like to arrange an Eclipse 2017 presentation for your group, you can always contact the NCSF. (262) 338-8614.  www.ncsf.info

Friday Night Movie

By , August 7, 2017 4:30 pm

The Circle  Friday, August 11th starting at 7 pm. With delicious food from Tello’s Grill and Cafe! Rated PG-13

 Based on the novel by Dave Eggers. “When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company’s modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.”
