It's Tuesday, Aug. 21, Poet's Day. Happy birthday to band leader Count Basie (1904-1984), born William James Basie, who added a nice touch to Mel Brooks' 'Blazing Saddles.' Today in 2017, an eclipse swept across the center of Oregon, providing a great solar show. Expect more hazy skies, a gusty east wind and a high in the mid 90s. Here are a few things to do when you're not writing poetry today:




• Hear John Nilsen and Swimfish at Noon Tunes, noon to 1 p.m., Pioneer Courthouse Square. thesquarepdx.org/event/noon-tunes-summer-concert-series-9/

• Spend time with a bunch of animals at the Oregon Zoo's Twilight Tuesday, 5 to 9 p.m., 4001 S.W. Canyon Road. Cost: $5. www.oregonzoo.org

• Talk about inventors at Science on Tap, 7 p.m., Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 N.E. Alberta St. Cost: $15. www.viaproductions.org/events/alberta_aug_21_inventors/
