Exclusive Members Only Event – Totality! The 2024 Total Solar Eclipse

Join other SPARK members for this EXCLUSIVE MEMBERS ONLY EVENT! Learn more about membership.

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. The sky will darken as if it were dawn or dusk. There will not be another total solar eclipse viewable from North America until August 23, 2044.

Jackie Beucher from the Astronomical Society of Kansas City will discuss everything you need to know about the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024: where to see it, what to expect, and how to safely view it. She will also discuss how to plan a trip to see the eclipse. She will provide “eclipse safety glasses” for us.

The Astronomical Society of Kansas City provides a community to support education and outreach, observing and research opportunities for members and guests, and resources for all who are interested in astronomy and allied sciences.

This is an in-person only presentation without a Zoom or recorded component.

The event is finished.
