Put Your Eclipse Event on the Map!

Richard Fienberg

Richard Fienberg American Astronomical Society (AAS)

Are you hosting and/or participating in an eclipse-viewing party or other public event for the 21 August 2017 coast-to-coast solar eclipse? To help let people know about it, you should make sure it's included on the interactive Events & Activities map on the AAS solar-eclipse website.

Most of the events mapped to date are in the path of totality, but a growing number of communities off the path are organizing activities to share safe views of the partial eclipse with members of the public. We want to know about them, too.

Are you giving a lecture or other presentation about the eclipse to your local astronomy club, civic group, or public library? Is your local planetarium doing any eclipse programming? We want to know about that, too!

Here's a complete list of event and activity types that we're including on the map:

  • Astronomy Club Meeting
  • Citizen Science Activity
  • Community Festival (Multi-Day)
  • Documentary or Film Screening
  • Eclipse Day Observing
  • Lecture or Presentation
  • Museum or Other Exhibit
  • Observatory Open House
  • Park or Nature Center Program
  • Planetarium Show
  • Radio or Television Broadcast
  • Science Cafe
  • Tour or Travel Program
  • Webcast or Live Stream
  • Workshop or Conference
