Special solar eclipse event offered at Kentucky Science Center

The Kentucky Science Center in Louisville is hosting a special event to commemorate the upcoming solar eclipse on April 8. From 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., guests will have access to all 50,000 square feet of the center, including educational programming and live coverage of the eclipse from NASA.

The event will feature a variety of free activities for attendees, including creating pinhole cameras, watching live coverage of the eclipse from NASA, and engaging in educational activities about gravity and UV rays. Additionally, documentary screenings of Journey to Space 3-D will be available in the center’s four-story theater, exploring NASA’s Space Shuttle program and other space-related topics.

Kentucky Science Center CEO Mike Norman is excited about hosting this event and engaging with guests from the region. He expressed his enthusiasm for sharing the science behind the eclipse with visitors and explained that it was made possible in part by a 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 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

During the event, guests can also participate in cultural interpretations of eclipses and constellations as well as learn about viewing safety measures during such an event.

In addition to all these activities, a limited number of eclipse glasses will be distributed free of charge to attendees so they can safely view the partial eclipse that will take place on April 8th.

Overall, this event promises to be an exciting opportunity for visitors to learn more about science and space while having fun at the same time!
