Phoenix Science Center to Host Free Eclipse Viewing Event

Arizona Science Center in Phoenix is preparing to host a free viewing party for the upcoming total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8. This rare astronomical event occurs when the sun and moon cross paths, causing darkness to fall upon the Earth. Phoenix residents will have the opportunity to witness 64% coverage between 10:08 a.m. and 12:35 p.m., with peak coverage at 11:20 a.m.

The Science Center, located at 600 E. Washington St., downtown, will kick off the viewing party at 9 a.m. on the day of the eclipse. Throughout the day, attendees can expect solar-based activities and educational opportunities that will teach them about this unique astronomical event. Telescopes will be available for sky gazing, and interactive activities will help visitors understand how it works.

It’s crucial for anyone planning to watch the solar eclipse to wear solar eclipse glasses to protect their eyes from potential sun damage. Not only Arizona but also some areas of the Southwest, including Texas, will experience a total solar eclipse during this event. NASA has planned to launch three rockets during this time to study its effects on Earth’s atmosphere further information can be found on their website https://wwwazscienceorg/.
