Join Princeton University’s Astrophysical Sciences Department, the Council on Science and Technology, and the Office of Science Outreach for this incredible and rare event – a total solar eclipse!

A total solar eclipse happens when the moon passes in front of the sun at just the right point in its orbit during the daytime. The last total solar eclipse to span most of the country was in 2017, and the next one after this is in 2044. Join them in Palmer Square on Monday, April 8th at 2 pm to speak to our local eclipse experts to learn more about how eclipses happen and to receive your solar eclipse glasses to safely view the main event at 3:25pm!
