Solar Eclipse Viewing Party on Palmer Square

August 21, 2017, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Bring your lawn chair or a blanket and we will provide the protective glasses and snacks at this three-hour Solar Eclipse Viewing Party. Princeton is not in the path of totality, but there should still be a good show. Astronomers from Princeton University’s department of Astrophysical Sciences will be there to provide eclipse education and answer questions.

Please note:

We have 400 eclipse glasses to distribute, and will give out 1 pair per family. Glasses will not be handed out until 1pm.

Food while supplies last.
