Astronomical Society Preps For Eclipse Event

Door Peninsula Astronomical Society (DPAS) members have been getting questions about whether they will have a viewing event for the April 8 solar eclipse.

“We’ll have our solar scopes set up for safe viewing of the sun,” the DPAS posted on Facebook. “Sturgeon Bay will see about 86% of the sun covered. Nothing compared with being in a total eclipse, but still pretty cool.”

The group will announce more in the future about the eclipse that will start just before 1 pm, peak just after 2 pm and end after 3 pm.

The DPAS website is and the Ray and Ruthie Stoneciper Astronomy Center is located at 2200 Utah St., Sturgeon Bay.
