August 20-22, 2017 Featuring a Total Solar Eclipse on August 21
Madras & Bend, Oregon
Come experience the total solar eclipse with real astronomers from Lowell Observatory. Our astronomers, educators, and personalities from the Science Channel will narrate the eclipse as it occurs. Lowell Observatory will also host astronomer talks and solar experiments throughout the day at the Madras High School and Performing Arts Center and end the evening with a star party on the football field.
The August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse has been called the Great American Eclipse because it will be visible from only one country—the United States. The Lowell Observatory 2017 Solar Eclipse Experience is a way for Lowell to enhance and educate the public’s solar experience. The highlight will be more than two minutes of total darkness during the eclipse on Monday, August 21. We will also be offering star parties and astronomer talks in the evenings of Sunday, August 20th in Madras and Tuesday, August 22nd in Bend.
