Frosty Drew Observatory Eclipse Watching

About: Where are you planning to be for the “Great American Eclipse”? If you’re not traveling to be in the path of totality, you still can see a spectacular partial eclipse in Rhode Island, where the moon’s shadow will cover 66 percent of the sun. Special activities at the Frosty Drew Observatory begin at 10 a.m. Several solar telescopes will be available for viewing. A white-light scope shows the event in its natural colors, as it happens. A hydrogen-alpha scope filters the light to enhance sunspots and solar prominences. Solar projectors with big screens will make for easy viewing of all the events in real time. The solar eclipse starts at 1:30 p.m. and will continue until 4, with the maximum 66 percent eclipse occurring at 2:47. The observatory will have a limited supply of eclipse safety glasses available for visitors to use. Glasses will also be available for purchase. If you bring your own, be sure they are properly certified. A $1 donation to the observatory is suggested for this event.

Foam Fest: Styrofoam Recycling Event

About: The second Blackstone Heritage Corridor Inc. event offers residents of any community the opportunity to recycle Styrofoam, which isn’t accepted in any local curbside recycling program. KWD recycles expanded polystyrene (EPS/#6) products, also known as Styrofoam, and offers this service every day with a drop-off station on its loading dock. Foam Fest serves as an open house to allow people an inside look at the recycling operation and learn which products are accepted. Styrofoam brought to KWD must be clean and dry and, if dropped off on the loading dock, should be placed into a plastic bag. Common Styrofoam products accepted for recycling include firm white foam used in shipping, standard packing peanuts (not biodegradable), meat trays, produce trays, and coffee cups that have been washed and dried.
