SUNRIVER, Ore. (KTVZ) - Robert Grossfeld, director of the Cascade Astronomy & Rocketry Academy, has announced plans to set up telescopes in Bend's Old Mill District during the partial eclipse on Monday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The maximum eclipse viewable from Bend is about 26%, which will occur around 11:25 a.m.

Never look at the sun without proper equipment, Grossfeld said. Cascade Astronomy & Rocketry will have special telescopes fitted with special filters for safe viewing of the sun.

"We want to thank the Old Mill District & Oregon Astronomy for allowing this free access to view this natural event," Grossfeld said.

Monday, April 8th at 10:30am to 12:30pm.

Location: Old Mill District- Central Plaza near bridge.
