Partial Solar Eclipse Viewing

October 14, 2023 @ 12:26 pm - 2:27 pm

On Saturday, October 14th, an Annular Solar Eclipse will cross the United States. In Maine we will only see partial phases with between 20-25% of the disk of the Sun obscured by the Moon. In Bangor, the eclipse will start at 12:26 PM and end at 2:27 PM. See the partial eclipse for yourself that day from our Clark Telescope starting at 11:30 AM.  

Safe viewing of solar eclipse is extremely important! Never look at the Sun directly without proper protection, as doing so can cause eye damage. The planetarium has solar eclipse glasses available in our gift shop for $2 each which provide a safe way to observe the Sun during eclipses.

Open to the public.
