The Eclipse Description
Every day, we walk around and do our own thing. The sun rises and we wake up, and in the evening it sets and we go to bed. But how weird would it be if a huge shadow was cast over the land where you stand. On August 14th, 2017, the Manheim Township Astronomy Club will answer the question as to why this all happens. Through an out-of-this-world multimedia full dome presentation, you will learn about the processes behind, and the stories told about eclipses.
There will be three showings of the full-dome show “Eclipse Across America” on 8/14/17. After each showing, a solar watch will be held outside of the planetarium entrance.
11:00-11:45AM 1:00-1:45PM 3:00-3:45PM
Solar Telescope Observing Directly Before/After Each Show (10:30AM-4:30PM) ****Weather Permitting****
