Sun Salute: Celebrating the Eclipse
This event has ended. It was scheduled for 8/21/2017.
8 a.m. Monday, Aug 21
Observe the 2017 Solar Eclipse from the museum’s front lawn. This partial solar eclipse will cover approximately 45 percent of the sun’s surface and will be the best solar eclipse in Anchorage for the next several years. With help from local astronomers, there will be plenty of solar telescopes and eclipse-viewing equipment for all. Although the eclipse is only viewable if the skies are clear, museum staff will be on hand with solar-viewing equipment. Coffee will be available for purchase. Free.
