Join us for the Solar Eclipse - Monday, April 8th! 

Did you know some areas of Ohio will experience a total solar eclipse on April 8? Roughly 35 counties will experience complete totality, and all other counties will experience partial totality! Jackson County will see a partial totality of 96.8%, which is very close to full totality! 

Join us for fun activities and crafts related to the solar eclipse from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM on April 8th at the Jackson County OSU Extension Office. The best view of the total solar eclipse will take place from approximately 3:08pm - 3:19pm, which we will view together from outside the Extension Office. NASA is estimating that the zip code 45640 will see the most coverage at 3:12 pm, with coverage starting at 1:55, and ending at 4:26pm.

All participants will recieve a FREE pair of solar eclipse glasses! 

School's out! Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
