Join HMNS on August 21st as we experience a partial solar eclipse right here in Houston. The next eclipse of this caliber will not be visible in the United States until 2024, so you don’t want to miss this!
During the eclipse between noon and 2 p.m., the Burke Baker Planetarium will offer six special, 15-minute programs explaining the aspects of the eclipse and what it looks like from Houston, the line of totality and even from the Moon. The program will include images of totality as they are posted from sites along the center line, including the museum group of 230 travelers in Casper, Wyoming.
Tickets are only $4 and can be purchased at the box office!
Also, telescopes will be set up outside on the Sundial Plaza at the front entrance of the museum and guests will have the opportunity to create their own pinhole projector.
HMNS will also be showing NASA Eclipse 2017 Live — Streaming Video of August 21 Total Solar Eclipse. Watch as it progresses in the Wortham Giant Screen Theatre for FREE between 12 and 2 p.m.
