Experience the Magic of the Solar Eclipse at Kentucky Science Center’s Special Event

Special solar eclipse event offered at the Kentucky Science Center

The Kentucky Science Center in Louisville is hosting a special event to celebrate the upcoming solar eclipse. On April 8, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., guests will have access to all 50,000 square feet of activities and educational programming at the center. In addition to exploring the exhibits, visitors will have the chance to participate in special activities that focus on eclipse-viewing safety, cultural interpretations of eclipses and constellations, and a partial eclipse viewing opportunity.

One of the highlights of the event is the distribution of free eclipse glasses, which are limited in quantity. Guests can also create their own pinhole cameras or stream live coverage of the eclipse from NASA. The center’s four-story theater will be screening documentaries about NASA’s Space Shuttle program, the International Space Station, and the Hubble Space Telescope.

Mike Norman, CEO of the Kentucky Science Center, expressed his excitement for the event and looked forward to engaging with guests about their understanding of the eclipse. The special event is made possible in part by a NASA Kentucky Space Grant. The Kentucky Science Center is located at 727 W. Main Street and is open seven days a week from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
