Partial Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

October 24, 2014 -
12:00am to 4:00am

What’s even rarer than a partial solar eclipse?  A clear Oregon sky in late October.  But we will keep our fingers crossed just in case! Join Science Factory educators and members of the Eugene Astronomical Society, and use our safe solar viewing telescopes to see this rare astronomical event from our north lawn.  The eclipse begins at 1:37 pm, reaches maximum at 3:02 pm, and is over by 4:22 in the afternoon.


Earth, Moon & Sun will play in the Exploration Dome at 12:15pm, 1pm, 2:30 pm & 3:30pm.  Regular Exploration Dome admission fees apply.


Plan B: Watch a live stream of the partial eclipse in our conference room if clouds or rain obstruct visibility.


Lunch available for purchase from Trolley Cuisine food truck from 12 - 4 pm! Menu at
