  • What: Partial Solar Eclipse
  • Where: Science Works, Ashland
  • Date: October 23, 2014
  • Time: Mid Afternoon

We are fortunate to be able to view a partial Solar Eclipse (weather permitting) in the mid afternoon of Thursday, October 23. The eclipse will begin at 1:42pm, and reach a maximum at 3:07pm.

SOS is teaming up with Science Works to share the partial solar eclipse with the public. Members please bring properly solar fitted telescopes and/or solar scopes. Come see the moon take a "bite" out of the sun and also observe any sunspots. Let's hope for a clear day!
