Join us outside the Museum entrance to view a variety of features on the Sun. Knowledgeable staff will be there to answer questions and guide observing. This program takes place on the second Saturday of each month.
On this date there will be an annular solar eclipse, when the Moon will partially cover the Sun. The eclipse will be observable between 12:00 pm and 2:39 pm from the Washington, D.C. area, and this program will offer several different ways to view it safely.
If clouds are blocking the view of the sky, find us inside the Museum’s Space Hangar to see images of the Sun taken by a satellite.
