Dozens gathered at the Rapid City Public Library around midday Monday (April 8) to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse.  Safety viewing glasses went quickly from a booth inside at the Library lobby.  Safety binoculars and a telescope were also set up as gazers waited for fleeting moments to catch the eclipse in stages over the noon-time period.  When the skies opened up briefly, onlookers were amazed at the displays.
