Join Waterloo Science to view the partial solar eclipse on August 21st! **Although the eclipse event is "sold out", you are still more than welcome to show up (no ticket required), but we cannot GUARANTEE that you will get your own set of eclipse viewing glasses to use.
Weather permitting, we will gather on the Village 1 Green to learn more about this rare event through talking with scientists, watching NASA's coverage of the total eclipse as it crosses the United States, and viewing the eclipse itself through special safe eclipse glasses (provided to the first 350 registrants).

Please register for this event:

Parking is provided in Lot X, an easy walk from Village 1 Green.

If the weather does not cooperate, we will still follow NASA's coverage. Please register so that we can keep you informed of the location.

NASA has some excellent background information on the 2017 solar eclipse:
