One of the best parts of the day will be the chance to view the solar eclipse. You’ll be able to witness this awe-inspiring event with the naked eye, and the first 200 attendees will also receive a free pair of Eclipse Glasses. But that’s not all – attendees will also be able to enjoy solar telescope observations, where you can see the most intricate details of the sun’s surface.

In addition to these activities, you’ll also get to create your pinhole viewer.

And if you’re feeling crafty, you can also join in creating DIY galaxy cookies – a fun and delicious way to celebrate the event.

Of course, safety is always paramount, especially when it comes to viewing a solar eclipse. That’s why our ambassadors will be on hand to teach attendees about eclipse safety. You’ll learn about the dangers of looking directly at the sun’s rays and how to protect your eyes during the event. With their expert guidance, you can be sure your experience will be safe and enjoyable.
