Join us at the museum on Monday, August 21 to safely view the partial solar eclipse and participate in a day of hands-on activities!
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in between the sun and the earth, casting a small shadow on Earth’s surface. The Museum will see a partial eclipse, meaning that at its peak at 2:44pm, about 93% of the Sun will be covered by the moon.
9:30am-4:00pm Hands-on activities, crafts, and telescopes, live stream total eclipse
10:30am-4:30pm in The Lab - participate in citizen science projects, live stream of the total eclipse
2:43-2:45pm Watch the maximum partial eclipse! (only lasts about 2 minutes!) - can watch from anywhere if you have proper eye protection
All day: Solar eclipse glasses available for purchase in the museum store ($1.49)
