Thursday, 8/3, 7-8:30 PM, A Solar Eclipse is Coming!
On August 21, 2017, for the first time in almost 30 years, a total solar eclipse will be visible from the continental U.S. in a 71-mile-wide path stretching from Oregon to South Carolina. From the Chicago area, about 85% of the Sun will be covered by the Moon. Michelle Nichols, Master Educator at the Adler Planetarium, will give an exciting presentation on the eclipses and how you can enjoy the partial or total eclipse – and also get ready for the next solar eclipse in 2024! This program is brought to you in partnership with the River Forest Township.
