A once-in-a lifetime event is coming to North America and the Desert Park Exhibition Society wants to make sure that you and your children remember it.
Desert Park will host a special August 21 viewing of the Great American Solar Eclipse. Our Science of the Sun brunch and celebration will be especially geared to youngsters — offering a fun, affordable, educational way to fully appreciate the solar eclipse.
Between 9 a.m. and noon August 21, the Moon, the Sun and Earth will align in an almost perfectly straight line and the Moon will cast its shadow on Earth. From our perspective, it will look like the Moon has taken a 90% bite out of the Sun.
Outside of the continental United States, Osoyoos is among the very best places to view the eclipse.
Tickets include brunch, entertainment and a free pair of eclipse viewing glasses. (Viewing the eclipse without protective wear is not recommended.)
Other fun activities — including music, games and face painting — will keep the youngsters entertained while the big moment approaches.
