No Sun? More fun!
August 21 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On August 21st, 2017 people across America will look to the sky to find the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight. This causes the temperature to drop and reveals massive streams of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon. On that day, America will fall under the path of a total solar eclipse. Join us on August 21st, 12-5pm to view the solar eclipse! Fayetteville is only in the path for a partial solar eclipse but we will be able to see about 90% of the eclipse. The maximum solar eclipse will be at 2:45pm. A food truck will be on site for snacks at 1pm and viewing glasses will be available for purchase in the Garden Gift Shop. Enjoy lawn games and the beautiful Garden backdrop as you witness a natural phenomenon. Free for Garden Members and regular daily admission applies for non-members.
***The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight.
