Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

Monday, April 8, 2024
10:00am to 12:00pm
Add to Cal

A total solar eclipse will pass over North America the morning of Monday, April 8 2024. Here in Pasadena, we will see it as a partial solar eclipse, where the shadow of the moon will cover part of the Sun over the course of 2 hours. At its peak at 11:13 AM, the Moon will cover almost 50% of the disk of the Sun. We will host a solar eclipse viewing party at the Cahill Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics and the adjacent space. We'll have solar telescopes, free eclipse glasses (as supplies last), and astrophysicists on hand to help everyone get the most out of this rare experience.

Astronomers and volunteers will be present to guide you through the eclipse and answer questions about the Sun, eclipse, and astronomy. This is a free event open to everyone. No reservations are needed. Stay only as long as you want.
