Free Public Planetarium Show: Total Solar Eclipses: why, when, where & how
By Dr. Mariana Lazarova (UNK)

On August 21, 2017, just 3 minutes before 1 PM, the city of Kearney will plunge into darkness for nearly 2 minutes: the Sun will disappear from view and the brightest stars will wink at you. But have no fear! During this talk, you will learn why eclipses happen, when and where they are visible to us, and how to safely observe the Great American Eclipse of 2017.

All shows are open to the general PUBLIC and FREE of charge. Tickets to reserve seating would be handed out 15-30 min before the show.
