Solar Eclipse Viewing

This event is no longer on sale.

Monday August 21

Preregistration required.  A program recommended for children 4-6 with an adult.

LOCATION CHANGE: Program participants meet at our Rowe Woods location in the grassy field near Abner Hollow Cabin.

On August 21, 2017, if skies are clear, the Cincinnati area will experience a significant partial solar eclipse. The moon will pass in front of the sun and cover up about 90% of it. Bring your lunch and watch the moon gobble up the sun! In order to look at the sun safely, we'll make “pinhole projectors.” Remember, never look directly at the sun. 

Members $3; nonmembers $10 (includes admission).


*Please note that cancellations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the event. No refunds or transfers of fees will occur if the request is made less than two weeks prior to the event. All programs continue, rain or shine.
