Solar Eclipse
Monday, August 21, 2:30-3:30 p.m.
Come look at the partial solar eclipse with us! BPMM Museum Educator and NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador Robin Vernuccio will conduct a workshop on the eclipse and peek at the eclipse from the Mansion (weather cooperating). Attendees will receive their own eclipse glasses to safely view the eclipse and to take home. Children will have the opportunity to make Ultra Violet necklaces to measure whether the eclipsed sun gives off the same UV light as it does normally. Please note that a solar eclipse happens when the moon gets in the way of the sun’s light and casts its shadow on earth. This means that during the day the moon moves over the sun and the earth becomes dark. NASA is billing this eclipse as a great event! The solar eclipse will be visible partially or totally across the entire United States. Miss it and you will have to wait until 2024 for the next one. Warning! If you cannot make our event, never look directly at the sun with bare eyes! Cost Free  Register here.
