Join us in the observatory to view this once-in-a-lifetime event!

Provided skies are clear on the afternoon of Monday, August 21, all of the continental United States will be treated to a solar eclipse. Observers who can manage to place themselves under a 70 mile-wide band stretching from northern coastal Oregon, southward through the central United States, to the central coast of South Carolina will experience the wonder of a total eclipse. Observers in other areas of the US will see the sun blocked out by the moon to varying degrees. Here in northeast Ohio we’ll witness a partial solar eclipse, with about 80% of the sun obscured by the moon at maximum eclipse.

The Museum’s Ralph Mueller Observatory will be open for viewing the eclipse on Monday, August 21 from 1 to 4pm, weather permitting. We’ll observe the sun by projecting an image onto a screen through the Museum’s 3½ inch finder telescope. We will also have safe viewing glasses on hand for visitors’ use. Entrance to Ralph Mueller Observatory is included with general admission.
