A total solar eclipse will occur on August 21, 2017. Solar eclipses take place when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, blocking the image of the Sun from viewers on Earth. This upcoming eclipse has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse because it will be visible in totality only from the United States. It is extremely rare for an eclipse to only be visible in totality from one country making the Great American Eclipse a historic event. In fact, the last total solar eclipse to cross the continental United States was in 1918. However, there was a total solar eclipse that crossed the east coast of the United States in 1970.

The event will feature hands-on eclipse themed activities in Innovation Studios, a live stream of totality in the Omni, solar eclipse glasses to view the partial eclipse outside, and more. You can even ask an expert, Dr. Morgan Rehnberg, about solar eclipses.
