Celebrate the 2024 Eclipse with Us at the Home of Pluto!

On April 8, 2024, the New Moon will pass between the Sun and Earth, casting the darkest part of its shadow on the planet’s surface. This creates a visually dramatic celestial display for those located in the path of totality. Although the view from Lowell Observatory will be a partial eclipse, it promises to be an incredible experience. Join us for the 2024 Great American Solar Eclipse Party at Lowell Observatory, a celebration that will include astronomer talks, a scavenger hunt, and live views of the Total Eclipse from Waco, Texas.
