Description:
The Radford University Planetarium presents Friday Night at the Planetarium featuring the show "Totality!" on Friday, April 12, 2024.

Let's learn about eclipses! Two eclipses cross the US in 2023 and 2024 - an annular on October 14, 2023 and a total eclipse on April 8, 2024! Everyone in the continental US will experience at least a partial solar eclipse on April 8th.

Total solar eclipses are a rare and beautiful phenomena, and in this new planetarium show you will learn how eclipses happen, how to safely view one, and where these two eclipses take place. You will learn the history of eclipse watchers including some of the stories and legend that used to be associated with amazing and formerly-fear-inducing celestial events. You will learn about the 1919 eclipse and the observations that confirmed Einstein's world-changing Theory of General Relativity.

This show is produced by the Houston Museum of Natural Science, is approximately 24 minutes long and has something for all ages. The film will begin after starting things with an exploration of the current nighttime sky.

The Radford University Planetarium is located at 925 East Main Street in Radford, VA on the campus of Radford University.
