On Monday, August 21, 2017 people across the United States will witness the sun disappearing behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight, causing the temperature to drop rapidly, and revealing massive streamers of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon.
Although Reno will not be in the path of the total solar eclipse, viewing the partial eclipse will still be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Prime viewing of the eclipse from The Discovery will be at approximately 10:19am. Visit The Discovery to view a video stream of the total eclipse, learn about eclipse science, and participate in hands-on activities related to this very special event.
