Admission Information

In Bridgeport, we will see a partial solar eclipse between about 2pm and 4:30pm. Peak viewing will be between 3:15 and 3:30pm (up to 91% totality)!

Join Discovery in the morning to learn about eclipses with special viewings of Totality in our planetarium and streaming NASA TV throughout the day. During the viewing window, we will livestream with Elliot Severn, Planetarium Director, from the path of totality, then move to outdoor viewing with solar telescopes and eclipse glasses*. Learn about pinhole projections and make shadow artwork with the eclipsed sun.
