Welcome to our Eclipse Resource Center!

Thank you for your interest in joining libraries around the country in providing programming for the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse.  Funded by the NASA@ My Library program, STAR_Net has developed this resource center to assist your library in creating promotion and program materials for your eclipse event that include images, videos, animations, posters, artwork and a variety of outside resources such as FAQs and science activities related to Sun-Earth connections.

For questions or suggestions regarding the resources on this page, please email us at 2017Eclipse@SpaceScience.org. Over the next several months we will be adding more resources, so check back regularly.
