Conway, NH – Residents and visitors alike gathered on the lawn of the Conway Public Library for the viewing of today’s solar eclipse.
A viewing party was organized by Tara McKenzie, the Head of Youth Services at the Library. Bob Cottrell, from the History Room, also gave a short talk about the total eclipse back in 1932, and what occurred by those watching in the fields of Conway Village. Unlike today’s partial eclipse, Cottrell said Conway was actually located in the Center of Totality for the eclipse in 1932.
Today’s event seemed to draw more people than viewing glasses, some even arriving with their own gadgets. Everyone was happy to share.
