Presentation 7pm | Stargazing as long as you like
Six years, seven months and 18 days will have passed between the last total solar eclipse in the United States (on August 21st, 2017) and the upcoming total solar eclipse on April 8th, 2024. For anyone who has not experienced this celestial alignment, or wants to brush up on their knowledge, this is for you! Plan to join Kansas Astronomical Observers Outreach Coordinator and NASA Partner Eclipse Ambassador Jerelyn Ramirez at Volland for a fun and informing presentation that will include information about the eclipse, stargazing at Volland, and camping out under the stars in the Flint Hills.
Jerelyn will prepare you to view the eclipse safely and fully informed. The evening will start with a presentation at 7pm in Volland’s gallery. Jerelyn will speak on the science behind this special alignment and what to expect in April. After the presentation, which will last around an hour, Jerelyn will offer official eclipse viewing glasses for $1.
Join us for an extraordinary event in Volland’s official Dark Zone.
