Experience the Magic: Witnessing the Total Solar Eclipse in Phoenix with Arizona Science Center”.

Free Eclipse Viewing Party at Phoenix’s Science Center

On Monday, April 8, North America will witness a total solar eclipse. This celestial event occurs when the sun and moon align, casting a shadow on Earth. Arizona Science Center in Phoenix is hosting a free viewing party for this rare phenomenon. Located at 600 E. Washington St., downtown Phoenix, the Science Center will provide attendees with telescopes to view the sky and educational activities to learn about the solar eclipse.

Phoenix residents will have the opportunity to experience 64% coverage of the solar eclipse between 10:08 a.m. and 12:35 p.m., with maximum coverage occurring at 11:20 a.m. To protect their eyes from potential sun damage, it is important for anyone planning to watch the solar eclipse to wear solar eclipse glasses. Some areas of Arizona and the Southwest, including Texas, will also experience a total solar eclipse.

NASA is launching three rockets during the eclipse to study its effects on Earth’s atmosphere. For more information about this unique astronomical event and how to attend the viewing party at Arizona Science Center, visit their website at https://www.azscience
