Solar Eclipse Beury Beach Party

April 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

A total eclipse of the sun will traverse the United States on Monday, April 8, 2024, during which the Philadelphia region will experience a partial solar eclipse reaching over 90% of totality. The moon’s maximum coverage of the sun will be at 3:23 p.m.

Join the Department of Physics on Beury Beach to learn more about the science behind the eclipse. See the eclipse through multiple solar viewing telescopes, on monitors and with protective eyewear.

The eclipse, where the path of the moon crosses in front of the sun, will cover nine-tenths of the sun’s surface locally. This is a “deep partial” solar eclipse, where the sky will get noticeably darker, brighter stars and the planets Jupiter and Venus will be visible and the sun’s profile will be reduced to a slender crescent. The next eclipse of this magnitude in the Philadelphia region won’t happen until May 11, 2078!

Viewing success is dependent on weather and cloud cover.
