2017 Heritage Eclipse Viewing – Heritage Museums & Gardens

August 21 @ 10:00 pm - August 22 @ 4:00 am

On August 21, America will experience a total solar eclipse. Here on the Cape, we will experience a dramatic partial solar eclipse and Heritage will be hosting a viewing event! Come join us!  Bring a blanket and a picnic, or get moon and sun themed food from the Magnolia Café. The sky show takes place between 1 and 4, with the ultimate expression of the eclipse at about 2:30 PM.  You’ll get a free pair of safe eclipse viewing glasses, and we’ll help you create your own pinhole projector to safely view the eclipse!  An astronomy expert will be on hand to answer your questions and explain what’s going on.  Join us out on the Parade Field because another total solar eclipse will not be visible here until 2024, so you won’t want to miss this exciting event!
