Partial Eclipse April 8

On April 8, Greenville will see a partial solar eclipse! A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow on Earth that will block the Sun’s light. The eclipse will be a partial for Greenville because in our area, only about 82% of the Sun’s light will be blocked. It will begin at 1:50pm and end at 4:24pm. Remember to wear your special solar eclipse glasses to view! To learn more, check out our Starry Night feature film – Eclipse: The Sun Revealed – at both 6:00pm and 7:30pm on April 5th!

Be sure to visit us at Fridays Starry Nights or Afternoon Explorations for a FREE pair of eclipse glasses with your admission ticket thanks to our partner Greenville Water.

Roper Mountain will not have Eclipse programming on April 8th.
