The Great American Solar Eclipse Party


Aug 21, 2017
01:00 PM until 04:00 PM


Join us for the First Total Solar Eclipse of the Sun in the USA since 1979 and the first visible eclipse from all 48 contiguous United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) since June 8, 1918. 
NJ will unfortunately not be able to see a full total eclipse but we will be able to see about 75% of the Sun covered by the Moon. It is very important to never look at the direction even when mostly covered by the Moon. Special eye protection or solar filters will be required to view the eclipse live. We will have telescopes with special solar filters set up at the planetarium to view the eclipse.

Eclipse Details in Toms River:
Begins at 1:23 pm
Maximum at 2:45 pm 73.898% Obscuration
Ends at 4:02 pm
