NORWALK, Conn. — Looking for a spot for the youngsters to check out the solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21? The Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk will be hosting activities Monday planned with the children of all ages in mind.

The museum's once-in-a-lifetime "Great American Eclipse" experience will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Amateur astronomers can see what happens when the sun disappears behind the moon.

Visitors can witness the solar eclipse as it is captured streaming live from the sky in Connecticut and around the continental United States at the Stepping Stones state-of-the-art Multimedia Gallery.
