Marshall Public Library, Zoo Idaho Celebrate Eclipse During August


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 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.
