The Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017 Planetarium Show

By GEHMS Planetarium (other events)

2 Dates Through Aug 17, 2017

On August 21, 2017, millions of people across the United States will see
nature's most wondrous spectacle - a total eclipse of the Sun. It is a scene
of unimaginable beauty; the Moon completely blocks the Sun, daytime becomes
a deep twilight, and the Sun's corona shimmers in the darkened sky. This show will give you all the information you need to prepare for the event and entertain you with ancient eclipse lore that has been passed down for ages.  Where will you be?
