Solar Eclipse Event | 04.08

Because Syracuse falls in the path of totality, on April 8, 2024, we will experience complete darkness for several minutes beginning around 3:22 PM. This awe-inspiring event is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come together as we encourage wonder, celebrate community, and educate people of all ages about astronomy and space science. ☀️✨ The next total eclipse in New York State will not take place until 2079.

Join the fun of the 2024 Solar Eclipse Festival – FREE for the community! More festival information coming soon.

Educators, organizations, and other community leaders can sign up NOW to receive a free kit to engage students, customers, or clients for the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse! Eclipse kits will be delivered beginning in Fall 2023 and will include viewing glasses, activity sheets/lessons, posters, and more!
