Admission Purchase general admission

Get ready for the once-in-a-lifetime Total Solar Eclipse, happening tomorrow! A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. Though Yonkers is not in the path of totality, we will experience 91% eclipse coverage.

Today, learn all about the big event in a live planetarium show. Make your own pinhole viewer in a Junior Docent–led workshop. Practice looking at the Sun safely through a solar telescope. Sit for a unique solar and/or lunar face painting by Agostino Arts. Look at artists’ depictions of the sky in Collection Spotlight: The Art of Skywatching. Purchase exclusive HRM eclipse glasses (while supplies last). Plus, pose in front of a special eclipse backdrop for a memorable photo. Join us in anticipation!

This event is part of #HRMEclipse.
