Phoenix Science Center to Host Free Eclipse Viewing Event

Total Solar Eclipse at the Arizona Science Center: A Once-in-a-Lifetime Educational Experience

Arizona Science Center in Phoenix is preparing for a once-in-a-lifetime event, a total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8. This astronomical phenomenon occurs when the sun and moon cross paths, causing darkness to fall upon the Earth. The Science Center will be hosting a free viewing party for the event, which promises to be an educational and exciting experience for all attendees.

On the day of the eclipse, visitors can expect to witness 64% coverage between 10:08 a.m. and 12:35 p.m., with peak coverage at 11:20 a.m. To ensure their safety and comfort during the event, it is crucial that they wear solar eclipse glasses. These specialized glasses are designed to protect the eyes from potential sun damage caused by looking directly at the sun during a total solar eclipse.

Throughout the day, the Science Center will offer various solar-based activities and educational opportunities for attendees to learn more about this rare astronomical event. Telescopes will be available for sky gazing, and interactive activities will help teach visitors about how these celestial bodies interact with each other in space. Additionally, NASA will be launching three rockets during the eclipse to study its effects on Earth’s atmosphere, making it an ideal opportunity for science enthusiasts to learn more about our planet’s natural processes.
