Total Eclipse of the Heart(land) banner

See sun spots! See solar flares! Join us for an afternoon of learning about the sun, the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse, and how to view it safely from anywhere in Arkansas. We’ll be using special equipment for solar viewing to get a close up view of the sun throughout the event (weather permitting) and have a few special activities detailed below. We want to extend a special invitation to teachers who can receive free eclipse glasses for classroom use, while supplies last, for attending the 1pm – 2pm eclipse talks.

Event is open to the public. Teachers, please register at www.caasastro.org/eclipse-glasses/eclipse-registration/ in order to receive the free eclipse glasses. Eclipse glasses will also be available for purchase.

12pm-1pm: Food trucks + solar viewing telescope exploration
1pm-2pm: Eclipse talks in the STEAM Lab. Teachers who attend can receive free eclipse glasses for classroom use while supplies last; please register!
2pm-3pm: Hands-on activities for families. Make your own pinhole solar viewer, create solar art.
