Rotary Club members view eclipse

by Jerlene Rose

On Saturday, Oct. 14, members of the Berea Rotary Club joined members of the Pinnacles Astronomy Club at the Forestry Outreach Center at Indian Fort to view the partial eclipse of the sun.

A free pair of NASA-approved sun viewing glasses was provided by the club to everyone attending to enjoy the event close-up and with safely.

The eclipse event was between noon-3 p.m., with the most of the sun covered around 1 pm.

Cloud cover was intermittent but dedicated eclipse watchers were rewarded with some breaks in the clouds.

Jeff Hutton, a member of the Pinnacles Astrology Club, was the guest speaker at the Oct. 17 meeting of the Berea Rotary Club. He gave an interesting and informative video presentation of eclipses and explained when and how they occur.

• The Berea Rotary Club will host its annual Election Day Pancake Breakfast on Tuesday, Nov. 7, at First Christian Church, 206 Chestnut Street.

Serving will be 8 a.m.-11:00 a.m.

Come join us and vote.
