This program is part of the monthly Evening at PARI series and will begin at 7:00 p.m. with the presentation, followed by a campus tour and a trip to the Exhibit Gallery. Weather permitting, the evening will also include a trip to the Nature Center where PARI astronomers and volunteers will use PARI’s telescopes to view Messier Objects and other phenomena in the night sky. The event will take place regardless of the weather so attendees are encouraged to dress appropriately and wear comfortable walking shoes. Each participant will also have the opportunity to have a photo taken with a PARI telescope and will receive a subscription to the PARI newsletter. Reservations are required and will be accepted until 3:00 p.m. the day of the event. Evening at PARI programs cost $20 per adult and $15 for seniors/military/students.

2017 TOTAL Solar Eclipse

Monday, Aug 21, 2017 –

Time: 9:00am – 5:00pm

A total solar eclipse— already being called the biggest and best in American history by some— will cross the continental U.S. August 21.  It will be the first total solar eclipse seen in the continental U.S. in 38 years, and the first to sweep across the entire country in 99 years.
Tickets to the eclipse event at PARI are sold out. For information about other viewing sites in Transylvania County please visit the Land of Waterfalls website.
The path of totality will cross the PARI campus at 2:36:44 p.m. EDT and last for 1 minute, 47 seconds.  It will be a historic moment, the first time a total solar eclipse has occurred at a site equipped with 26-meter radio telescopes.  No one knows what will be learned by pointing these giant instruments at the Sun during totality, but scientists will be on hand to find out.
Teams of NASA scientists will also be at PARI, conducting two different eclipse experiments.  It is a fitting return for the nation’s space agency, for it was NASA that selected the 200-acre campus for the site of its East Coast satellite tracking station during the infancy of the U.S. space program, more than 50 years ago.
