Free Eclipse Viewing Party at Phoenix’s Science Center

On Monday, April 8, North America will experience a rare astronomical event as the sun and moon cross paths during a total solar eclipse. In Phoenix, Arizona Science Center is preparing to host a free viewing party for this phenomenon.

From 10:08 a.m. to 12:35 p.m., Phoenix residents will have the opportunity to witness 64% coverage of the solar eclipse, with the maximum coverage occurring at 11:20 a.m. The Science Center, located at 600 E. Washington St., downtown, will start hosting the viewing party from 9 a.m., with staff present throughout the day to provide telescopes for viewing the sky and engage in activities that educate attendees about this rare event within our solar system.

It is crucial for anyone planning to watch the solar eclipse to wear solar eclipse glasses as it protects their eyes from potential sun damage. Some areas of Arizona and the Southwest, including Texas, will experience a total solar eclipse during this time period. Additionally, NASA will be launching three rockets during this event in order to study its effects on Earth’s atmosphere.
