Solar eclipse 2024: Green Bay forecast, area events, eclipse time – Green Bay Press Gazette

GREEN BAY – The solar eclipse is just a couple hours away. People across the country will head outside after noon to catch a glimpse of the unique experience. While Green Bay is not in the path of totality, the sky could still dim slightly during the partial eclipse.

Though your view of the eclipse may not be perfect with the weather, you’ll still be able to experience it. The sky is expected to get cloudier in the afternoon as the eclipse starts, but Scott Berschback, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service Green Bay, said you’ll get glimpses in between the clouds.

“There will be breaks in the clouds especially as you work your way south and east,” he said.

The Fox Valley and lakeshore cities will have a sunnier view, while Green Bay and northern areas could have a hazy sky. It’s hard to tell what the sky will look like during the peak of the eclipse but there will be clearer moments during the 2.5-hour process.

“Somewhere in that period you’ll get a glimpse of it,” Berschback said.

Here’s what to know about the eclipse in the Green Bay area and information on viewing parties.

Great Solar Eclipse View Event at Mulva Center

The Mulva Cultural Center in De Pere is hosting the Great Solar Eclipse Viewing Event from 1-3 p.m. today.

“This will be a fun and safe way to see the eclipse, plus take part in science activities and shadow art,” said Marv Wall, Mulva Cultural Center president.

The event is free, but the center said all participants will be required to wear protective eyewear. Such eyewear will be available to buy for $3 at the Mulva center gift shop.

St. Norbert College viewing

St. Norbert College in De Pere will have a live NASA feed running inside the Gehl-Mulva Science Center lobby and “some properly shielded telescopes” outside the south entrance to the building, according to Michael Olson, assistant professor of physics. They plan to start at about 12:45 p.m. today, if weather cooperates.

Green Bay will experience the partial solar eclipse from 12:55 p.m. to 3:21 p.m. The eclipse will reach its peak at 2:09 p.m. when the moon covers 84.6% of the sun. Green Bay residents can see the eclipse at 50% of its peak coverage at 1:34 p.m. and again at 2:43 p.m.
