The Appold Planetarium is closed for the summer months while we prepare new shows. View information on the solar eclipse coming August 21.
An eclipse of the Sun is a wondrous spectacle, and for the first time in 99 years, a Total Solar Eclipse will sweep across North America this summer. On Monday, August 21, millions of people from Oregon to South Carolina will witness a scene of unimaginable beauty; the Moon completely blocks the Sun, daytime becomes a deep twilight, and the Sun’s corona shimmers in the darkened sky.
Eclipse Viewing Glasses $1 each
$5 for adults
$4 for children 12 and under and members of the Lourdes community.
Reservations are recommended.
