At the Hatter Planetarium
This year we are ending our summer hiatus early to help you prepare for the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 with a viewing of “Eclipse Across America.” This show will detail the lore and mechanics of eclipses and give you a big picture view of the the way this eclipse will unfold across the contininent. We will follow the show with a live presentation on the local circumstances of the event and ways to view it. We’ll finish up with some Q & A. Note: the path of totality does not enter Pennsylvania. Weather permitting, Gettysburgians will witness a partial eclipse, with about 80% of the sun covered by the moon.
Total show time is about 40 minutes. The show is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-seated basis. Doors close when the show begins.
“Eclipse Across America” was created by Dan Zielinski of Jenks Planetarium (Oklahoma) and Dr. Todd Young of Fred G. Dale Planetarium (Nebraska) and distributed to Spitz SciDome planetariums free of charge.
