Free Eclipse Viewing Party at Phoenix’s Science Center

AZ Science Center Hosts Free Viewing Party for Once-in-a-Lifetime Total Solar Eclipse in Phoenix

Phoenix residents will have the opportunity to witness a total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8. The Arizona Science Center in Phoenix is hosting a free viewing party for this rare astronomical event within our solar system. The eclipse occurs when the sun and moon cross paths, casting darkness onto the Earth.

The Science Center, located downtown at 600 E. Washington St., will start its viewing party at 9 a.m. on the day of the eclipse. Staff will be present throughout the day to offer solar-based activities and education, provide telescopes for viewing the sky, and engage in activities to teach attendees about this unique phenomenon.

It’s important to note that anyone planning to watch the solar eclipse should wear solar eclipse glasses to protect their eyes from potential sun damage. Some areas of Arizona and the Southwest, including Texas, will experience a total solar eclipse during this time. Additionally, NASA will be launching three rockets during the eclipse to study its effects on the Earth’s atmosphere.
