The Great American Eclipse at North Museum

April 8 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Not able to leave this neck of the woods to see totality? No worries! Here in Lancaster during the peak of the eclipse, the sun will be at 91% coverage, which will still be an awesome sight! The North Museum will be open April 8th and hosting a grand event with, but not limited to:

  • Solar scopes
  • Make your own pinhole projectors, which is a safe way to see the eclipse without solar glasses,
  • Make your own Eclipse
  • Showings of the planetarium show “Eclipses Across America”
  • A live feed up on our planetarium dome of totality.

The eclipse in Lancaster begins at 2:06 PM, peak coverage is 3:22 PM, and ends at 4:34 PM. Activities, and weather permitting, telescopes, will be out and ready by 12pm Monday. We look forward to seeing everyone here!
