The Lunar and Planetary Institute, in partnership with Levy Park and the Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library, is helping Houstonians experience the solar eclipse over Houston. On that day, the moon will pass directly between the Earth and sun, casting the moon’s shadow on the continental U.S. from coast to coast for more than 90 minutes. This is the first total solar eclipse visible over the U.S. since 1981 and the first since 1918 to be seen coast to coast.

Join scientists and educators from the LPI, and your community, at Levy Park and Freeman Library to witness this historical event people will talk about for many years to come. At both locations, safe, solar viewing glasses will be available.
