The exhibit Mapping Texas will close early at 4 pm on Friday, July 21

The Great American Eclipse

August 21 | 12 – 2 p.m.

Join HMNS as we experience a partial solar eclipse right here in Houston. The next eclipse of this caliber will not be visible in the United States until 2024, so you don’t want to miss this!

The Burke Baker Planetarium will hold six special, 15-minute programs between noon and 2 p.m. explaining the aspects of the eclipse and including images from Houston, the center line of totality and even the Moon. Tickets are only $4, and can be purchased at the box office!

Finally at 2 p.m., a special showing of Starry Night Express will feature a live feed from Casper, Wyoming, with Museum staff in the path of totality.

Filtered telescopes will be set up outside the Sundial Plaza at the front entrance of HMNS, and the Museum store will offer solar glasses that you will need to observe the eclipse safely. Outdoor events are weather dependent.
