The Manfred Olson Planetarium invites everyone in the community to come to their official, NASA-sponsored viewing event to experience the partial solar eclipse that will be visible from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on August 21, 2017.

Special viewing glasses will be available for purchase for safely seeing the solar eclipse. Enjoy live music from The Belle Weathers; a raffle with cash and gift certificate prizes; food and beverages from Meat on the Street (for purchase); lawn games; a bounce house; and more. Bring your own picnic materials and games. RSVPs are not required. A $5 donation is suggested.

In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in and around the UW-Milwaukee (UWM) Planetarium in the Physics building where livestreams of the eclipse will be shown.

The celebration will be held on the UWM campus next to the Kenwood Interdisciplinary Research Complex (KIRC) on 3135 N. Maryland Ave., Milwaukee, WI 53211. Limited parking is available in the parking lot of the Physics Building. Additional parking can be found at the Northwest Quadrant, Lubar, or Pavillion parking structures as well as along E.
