Experience one of the greatest astronomical moments of our lifetimes at Liberty Science Center!

A total solar eclipse is passing over the nation on Monday, August 21, and unless you can see it in its immediate path, there's no better or safer way to experience it than at Liberty Science Center!

On that day, our STEM team will be on hand to explain the cool celestial science behind the eclipse.

Looking directly at the sun is dangerous, but LSC educators will provide visitors with the necessary safety equipment, along with the unique insights to make this a truly memorable and safe experience.

We will have telescopes and sunspotters out on the lawn, plus a special scope with a camera and monitors for safely displaying the eclipse during its progression.

Our live science demos will include a solar eclipse model and explanation. We will share a live remote broadcast from Cadiz, Kentucky where the eclipse will be total (it will reach about 77% totality in New Jersey).

The fun will also include Sun Globe Racing in inflatable hamster balls, space crafts, such as sundials, eclipse art, and more.

All eclipse activities are included in your general admission to LSC.

The only eclipse activity that's additional is our special showing of the Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon Laser Show at 4:45 pm. You can pick up your ticket for the laser show on the day of the event at the box office ($12 for adults, $10 for kids).

Experience the fun all day, starting at 10 am! The eclipse itself will start at 1:23 pm, reaching maximum at 2:44 pm, and end at 4 pm.
