Stan Seeberg, former chairman of the Vancouver Sidewalk Astronomers, will set up his telescope Monday morning so folks can get glimpses of the solar eclipse that’s expected between 10:34 a.m. and 12:19 p.m.

Unless it’s cloudy or rainy, Seeberg will set up his telescope in the parking lot of Big 5 Sporting Goods, 8313 N.E. Highway 99 in Hazel Dell. In addition to the solar eclipse, sun spots may be visible, he said.

The eclipse will appear total only within a narrow band in the central and eastern United States. In the Pacific Northwest, it will be only partial, with about one-quarter of the sun’s disc covered by the moon.
