Kentucky Science Center hosts exclusive solar eclipse event

On April 8th from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm, the Kentucky Science Center will host a special event for the upcoming solar eclipse at their Main Street location. Guests attending the event will have access to all of the Kentucky Science Center’s activities across 50,000 square feet of space. Special programming will be stationed throughout the galleries, including educational sessions on the eclipse, eclipse-viewing safety, gravity, cultural interpretations of eclipses and constellations, and a chance to view the partial eclipse.

During the event, guests can create their own pinhole cameras and stream live coverage of the eclipse from NASA. Educational programs about gravity and UV rays will also be available. Guests can choose to attend documentary screenings of Journey to Space 3-D, a film about NASA’s Space Shuttle program and the International Space Station.

Chief Executive Officer Mike Norman is excited for the event, calling it a once-in-20-years phenomenon. The event is 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 am to 5:00 pm.
