On April 8th, the Kentucky Science Center in Louisville will be hosting a unique event to celebrate the upcoming solar eclipse. This special occasion will feature free activities and admission from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., with guests having the opportunity to receive a limited number of free eclipse glasses.

During the event, visitors can explore the Science Center’s expansive 50,000 square feet of exhibits and enjoy special programming throughout the galleries. Educational programs about the eclipse, eclipse-viewing safety, gravity, cultural interpretations of eclipses, and constellations will be available. Additionally, guests can view the partial eclipse and participate in hands-on activities such as creating pinhole cameras and learning about UV rays.

The Kentucky Science Center CEO Mike Norman is thrilled to host this event focused on this rare phenomenon. He emphasizes the importance of engaging guests in scientific exploration and understanding the reasons behind the eclipse. This event is made possible in part by a NASA Kentucky Space Grant.

In addition to the eclipse-related activities, guests can choose to watch a screening of the documentary “Journey to Space 3-D” in the Science Center’s four-story theater. This film explores NASA’s Space Shuttle program, the International Space Station, and the Hubble Space Telescope.
