On Monday, August 21, come to the Fleet to safely view the eclipse! This FREE event begins at 9 a.m. and includes:
• Free eclipse viewing from the Plaza in front of the Fleet Science Center
• Ask an Astronomer—our resident astronomer, Dr. Lisa Will, will answer your eclipse and space questions
• Pinhole Projectors—we’ll provide the supplies and instructions and you can make your own simple object that will project the eclipse
• Solar eclipse glasses for sale—these inexpensive glasses are made with special filters that allow you to view the eclipse without risking eye damage
Maximum eclipse in San Diego will be at 10:23 a.m. No tickets are needed for the Eclipse Viewing Event. Our cafe, Craveology, will be open for your morning latte, croissant or smoothie needs!
Though we won’t see totality overhead in San Diego, we are planning to show it on the Giant Dome Screen! Stay tuned for details.
If you want to be ultra-prepared for the eclipse, you can purchase your solar eclipse glasses today! They’re available now at the North Star Science Store.
