On Monday, August 21, many parts of North America will experience a rare total solar eclipse. Michigan is unfortunately not in the path of the total eclipse but we will experience a partial one. The Michigan Science Center in Detroit plans to host an entire day of science fun to celebrate the eclipse. Participate in fun earth and space-themed activities: make clouds, imagine what extraterrestrial life might be like, investigate gravity and more! Learn more about the sun in the Dassault Systèmes Planetarium.
Join amateur astronomers to safely look at the solar eclipse with telescopes or create your own pinhole viewer. There will also be a livestream of the eclipse in the Toyota Engineering Theater. The partial eclipse will be visible in Detroit from 1:03-3:47pm and will be most covered at 2:27pm.
