Solar Eclipse Spectacular at Kentucky Science Center: A Day of Science and Wonder!

Special solar eclipse event offered at the Kentucky Science Center

The Kentucky Science Center in Louisville is hosting a special event to commemorate the upcoming solar eclipse. This unique occasion will take place on April 8th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and guests can enjoy an array of educational activities that are free with admission. Furthermore, a limited number of eclipse glasses will be available for free to all attendees.

During the event, guests can explore the science center’s 50,000 square feet of exhibits while engaging in special programming stationed throughout the galleries. These activities will educate visitors about the science behind eclipses, safety measures for viewing them, cultural interpretations of eclipses and constellations, and a chance to witness the partial eclipse firsthand.

Some of the highlights during this event include creating pinhole cameras, streaming live coverage from NASA, and attending educational workshops that teach about gravity, UV rays, and more. Visitors can also opt to watch documentary screenings of Journey to Space 3-D in the center’s four-story theater, which explores NASA’s Space Shuttle program, International Space Station, and Hubble Space Telescope.

Mike Norman, CEO of Kentucky Science Center expressed his enthusiasm for this event and how it provides an opportunity to educate visitors about such an exciting astronomical phenomenon. The special event is made possible by NASA Kentucky Space Grant. The Kentucky Science Center is located at 727 W Main Street and is open seven days a week from 9:30 am to 5 pm.
