There aren’t many places in the world where the public can meet a professional astronomer and ask him or her questions. Come up to Mars Hill and meet a Lowell astronomer and take a peek at real-time images of planets, stars, galaxies and other celestial objects to be displayed on a large television screen outdoors with our new MallinCam. This is your opportunity to see interesting objects in the night sky, learn about an astronomer’s research, and ask questions you might have about any topic in astronomy.

Lowell Observatory Solar Eclipse Experience @ Madras High School, Madras, Oregon
Aug 21 @ 6:00 am – 3:00 pm

Come experience the total solar eclipse with real astronomers from Lowell Observatory. Our astronomers, educators, and personalities from the Science Channel will narrate the eclipse as it occurs. Lowell Observatory will also host astronomer talks and solar experiments throughout the day at the Madras High School and Performing Arts Center and end the evening with a star party on the football field.

The August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse has been called the Great American Eclipse because it will be visible from only one country—the United States. The Lowell Observatory 2017 Solar Eclipse Experienceis a way for Lowell to enhance and educate the public’s solar experience. The highlight will be more than two minutes of total darkness during the eclipse on Monday, August 21. We will also be offering star parties and astronomer talks in the evenings of Sunday, August 20th in Madras and Tuesday, August 22nd in Bend.

The Great American Eclipse @ Lowell Observatory
Aug 21 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
The August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse has been called the Great American Eclipse because it will be visible from only one country—the United States. Lowell Observatory will open early at 8 a.m. for viewing of this event.
Activities will include:
  • Live stream of the total eclipse and astronomer talks from the Lowell Observatory Solar Eclipse Experience in Madras, OR
  • Family friendly activities & crafts
  • All-day solar viewing with solar telescopes and solar glasses
  • Regular tours and programming will also be available
  • Wheely’s Cafe will be on hand with coffee and pastries

Please note that while totality will not be visible from Flagstaff, AZ, we will still be able to see the moon starting to cover the sun. The solar eclipse follows a path over the United States, crossing the country in a 73-mile wide diagonal band. While that arch covers the entire U.S., only the areas sitting directly beneath this path will experience total darkness.

 

The Great American Eclipse at Lowell Observatory is part of ECLIPSE MONTH (more info soon) and brought to you by:
