Eclipse Preview Weekend

  • This event has passed.

Apr 6 - Apr 7

MoSH is your Eclipse Prep headquarters!

Come to MoSH April 6 & 7 to learn the science behind the eclipse and to grab your Eclipse glasses and other guides before the big day. After every show, the planetarium will focus on the eclipse. Our education and planetarium departments will show an eclipse simulation from space to help understand what will be happening on April 8. (Note: MoSH is not open on Monday, April 8.)

With up-to-date weather reports, we will be able to talk about where to go for totality. Community engagement activities will also feature the eclipse. In the planetarium we will talk about the eclipse, how, when, and where to view it safely at its best.

Our Gift Shop will be open from 10:30 am – 5 pm for all of your Eclipse Needs.
