On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.
The total phase of this solar eclipse is not visible in San Antonio, but it can be observed here as a partial solar eclipse. Come view it with us at the Scobee Education
Center! We will be giving away safe solar viewing glasses and creating bracelets that react to the sun while supplies last! There will be solar telescopes and a live feed of the eclipse PLUS CPS Energy, SAC Student Life, Flamingo Rey’s Shaved Ice, MWS Smokers Street Tacos and other community partners will be on site for a fun and astronomical time!
Location: Scobee Education Center
Address: 28 W. Park Avenue, S.A. TX 78212

The last time a total eclipse crossed the United States from sea to sea was June 8, 1918. The 2017 eclipse in either total or partial phase can be seen by over 500 million people in North and South America, Europe, and Africa. In the U.S., millions will gather along a tiny ribbon less than 100 miles wide to see totality, the complete blocking out of the sun by the Moon which will reveal the solar corona. The rest of the entire country will be able to see a partial eclipse. It is also truly a historic event and a wonderful opportunity to view one of nature's most stunning displays.
*YOU MUST ALWAYS USE EYE PROTECTION TO VIEW THE ECLIPSE IF YOU ARE IN TEXAS & OTHERS AREAS WHERE THERE IS A PARTIAL ECLIPSE!*
Tickets not required to attend.
