Partial Solar Eclipse - April 8, 2024

January 26, 2024

The next North American solar eclipse is taking place the afternoon of Monday, April 8. Join us at the Leitner Family Observatory and Planetarium to witness this rare phenomenon! While Connecticut is not within the path of totality, it is still fairly close which allows for a partial eclipse event (starting at 14:12:41 EDT). A limited supply of eclipse glasses will be supplied, so it is best to plan on bringing your own - just be sure they are safe to use! Keep in mind that parking at LFOP will be very limited and restrooms will not be available, so please plan ahead. Seating will not be provided.
