Partial Solar Eclipse Event

On Monday, August 21, we are offering a free public eclipse viewing event to the community. Explorit's Astronomy Club will be onsite with safe filtered telescopes for viewing. Explorit will have fun, kid-friendly projects, including how to create pinhole projectors to indirectly view the eclipse. We also have a limited number of solar viewing glasses to share as well.
Activities begin at 9am, with the partial eclipse peaking at 10:17am. Please join us for this monumental event.
