The Kentucky Science Center is hosting a special event for the upcoming solar eclipse at their Main Street location. This unique event will take place on April 8th from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Guests attending the event will have access to all the Kentucky Science Center’s activities across 50,000 square feet of space.

Special programming will be stationed throughout the galleries, including educational sessions on the eclipse, eclipse-viewing safety, gravity, cultural interpretations of eclipses and constellations, and the chance to view the partial eclipse.
