On August 21, 2017 the sun will disappear behind the moon in a solar eclipse! Join NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Kidspace from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm to experience this awesome event. We’ll be safely viewing the eclipse using special, free solar sunglasses from JPL* and by making pinhole viewers in our Imagination Workshop. While Pasadena won’t experience a total solar eclipse, we will be showing the NASA live stream as it occurs across the United States.
Central Courtyard – Decorate your own, JPL solar glasses and view the eclipse
Celebration Center – Watch the total solar eclipse live across the United States
Imagination Workshop – Make pinhole viewers to safely project the eclipse on the ground
* The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses”. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun. Please note there are unsafe solar glasses being distributed by several vendors.
