In Louisville, the Kentucky Science Center is preparing to host a special event in honor of the upcoming solar eclipse.

During the event, guests can participate in a variety of educational programs about the eclipse, viewing safety, gravity, cultural interpretations of eclipses and constellations, and even view the partial eclipse themselves. Activities such as creating pinhole cameras and watching live coverage of the eclipse from NASA are available for attendees to enjoy.

In addition to these exciting activities, documentary screenings of Journey to Space 3-D will be available in the center’s four-story theater, exploring NASA’s Space Shuttle program and other space-related topics. Guests can also take advantage of a limited number of free eclipse glasses that will be distributed during the event.

He explained that this event is made possible in part by a NASA Kentucky Space Grant and is open to all members of the public who wish to learn more about this fascinating natural phenomenon. The Kentucky Science Center is located at 727 W.
