2024 Total Solar Eclipse At Loring Arch Air Hangar

April 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Monday, April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will be seen from parts of Maine. We are thrilled to offer a Star Park at the former Loring Air Force Base, in Limestone, Maine, at the famous Arch Air Hangar. We welcome you to join us as the planetary math magic allows for the moon to block the sun. The sun is about 400 times larger than our tiny moon, but the moon is about 400 times closer to us than the sun, meaning that it can periodically block the sun completely from earth’s view. Great American Eclipse provides this animation showing the passage of the moon’s shadow over Maine that day. During a total solar eclipse, the sky suddenly darkens, and
Most of Aroostook County will be in the path of totality and communities are gearing up for a day of excitement. The sun’s corona will be revealed. Be sure to grab your solar eclipse glasses while the sun is not fully eclipsed and join us for this spectacular event. Stay tuned for more exciting offers not only at our Star Park in Limestone, but our neighboring communities! We look forward to seeing you soon!
