A Journey into the Dark: Eclipses and Transits

A Journey into the Dark: Eclipses and Transits

Details

Runtime: 35 minutes

Included in Science Centre Admission

On Monday, August 21, 2017, a rare total solar eclipse will be visible over a very narrow path across a variety of US states, moving from the northwest state of Oregon to the southeast state of South Carolina.   In this narrow path, day time will turn to what looks like night for a period of up to 2 ½ minutes, as the long shadow of the Moon covers areas at different times. For Alberta, and all of Canada, and for most US states a deep partial solar eclipse will take place.  Lead by our theatre operator, let us explore the science of eclipses and transits and the significance of these events in early human cultures and in our present day society.

Includes a live sky show which showcases the planets and stars visible in our current night sky.
