On August 21, 2017, millions of people across the United States will see one of nature's most spectacular celestial shows—a total eclipse of the sun. During the eclipse, the moon will completely block the sun, daytime will become twilight, and the sun’s atmosphere, or corona, will be visible. This is the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental United States in dozens of years, and part of St. Louis is in the “path of totality”!
Join astrophysicist Dr. Laurance Doyle, Director of the Principia College Institute for the Metaphysics of Physics, on the Principia School Campus to view the total solar eclipse!
The day will include a short talk by Dr. Doyle to prepare you for viewing the eclipse, followed by a picnic lunch, educational displays and activites by the Principia School students, activities for all ages, and the total solar eclipse which will occur just after 1:00 p.m. Special eclipse viewing glasses will be provided for all attendees.

11:00 a.m.– 1:30 p.m.
