Total Solar Eclipse Viewing Party at Arizona Science Center: Protect Your Eyes and Learn About this Rare Astronomical Phenomenon

Free Eclipse Viewing Party at Phoenix’s Science Center

On Monday, April 8, North America will experience a rare astronomical phenomenon: a total solar eclipse. Arizona Science Center in Phoenix is preparing to host a free viewing party for this event. The eclipse occurs when the sun and moon cross paths, casting darkness onto the Earth.

The Science Center, located downtown at 600 E. Washington St., will start its viewing party at 9 a.m. on the day of the eclipse. Staff members will be present throughout the day to offer solar-based activities and education, provide telescopes for sky viewing, and teach attendees about this unique event within our solar system.

It’s crucial for anyone planning to watch the solar eclipse to wear solar eclipse glasses to protect their eyes from potential sun damage. Some areas of Arizona and the Southwest, including Texas, will experience a total solar eclipse. Additionally, NASA will launch three rockets during the eclipse to study its effects on Earth’s atmosphere.
