Generic4

The Marshall Public Library and Zoo Idaho are getting in on the biggest cosmic event in decades.


During the month of August, the library will feature a display on what has been dubbed the “Great American Eclipse.” The display will feature books, films, articles, posters, a 3-D model, and other materials related to the event. The library will also be handing out free eclipse glasses on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.


Meanwhile, Zoo Idaho will be hosting an Astronomy Night August 17 from 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. At the event, attendees will learn how to chart the night sky, identify constellations, and how to spot other celestial objects using a telescope. The cost to participate is $10 per person and interested participants can register at zooidaho.org or at the event.


The eclipse will happen at approximately 11:30 a.m., August 21. Totality will pass across the Upper Valley while Pocatello will experience 99 percent obscuration.
