Kerrville, Texas is THE nexus for the annular eclipse occurring on October 14, 2023 and the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024. Riverside Nature Center is welcoming these spectacular astronomical events with a SOLAR-bration, featuring a sophisticated immersive 20 minute planetarium experience.
Grace Beaudoin, Ph.D., USRA Senior Science Engagement Specialist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) will give a live narration of how eclipses happen, what to expect when the big days arrive, and then take you beyond to even more celestial wonders of our cosmos all within the state of the art Digitalis Planetarium.
Among the guests will be field experts in Astrobiology, Astrophysics and Lunar Geology. While our experts quench your thirst for knowledge, you can wet your whistle on an “eclipse sip” mocktail and enjoy a variety of hors d’oeuvres.
SOLAR-bration is an event, like no other to be offered in this area. It is exclusive to only a small number of attendees to ensure all receive an ultimate cosmic experience in a private setting with guaranteed planetarium observation times.
Your support through attendance or donation will benefit the educational programs and events Riverside Nature Center has planned throughout this exciting time of astronomical events.
Ticket sales will close at 12:00 a.m. on May 25, 2023. The winner of the star-gazing party will be announced during the event.
