This free event begins at 9 a.m. and includes free eclipse viewing from the Plaza in front of the Fleet Science Center with the option to purchase inexpensive solar eclipse glasses made with special filters that allow you to view the eclipse without risking eye damage. Resident astronomer, Dr. Lisa Will, will be available to answer any eclipse or astronomy questions you may have and there will be a workstation to make your own simple Pinhole Projector to view the eclipse projected on the ground. This will be the first total solar eclipse in the continental U.S. in 38 years, so don’t miss it!
