Public invited to view eclipse at Kingston Parish

The community is invited to gather at the Kingston Parish Labyrinth for Monday’s solar eclipse that will occur between 2 and 4 p.m. The Labyrinth is located on the front lawn of the Kingston Parish House at 370 Main Street in Mathews.

The last solar eclipse was seen seven years ago, said a press release, and another will not be visible until 2044. The eclipse this year will make a direct path across the United States from Texas to Maine. In Mathews, the moon will obscure about 80 percent of the sun.

An ancient spiritual tool, the labyrinth provides a sacred place to honor the total solar eclipse, said the release, “a moment when the sun, moon and earth are in alignment.”

Those attending are asked to bring protective eyewear. There will be a few extra pairs of protective glasses to share, a notice stated.
