Sun, Moon, and You – Dallas, Texas

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

Cotton Bowl® Stadium graphic solar eclipse

Sun, Moon, and You – Dallas, Texas

On April 8, the moon will pass directly between the sun and Earth, aligning perfectly to produce a total solar eclipse! When this occurs, the moon casts a shadow along a portion of the Earth’s surface, and Dallas is right in this path of totality!

Join us at the Dallas Cotton Bowl® Stadium for a fun FREE event that promises to make your solar eclipse experience unforgettable. We’re bringing you front-row seats to witness the awe-inspiring cosmic event (weather permitting), kicking off at 9:30 AM CDT.

This event will feature special guest, Neil deGrasse Tyson, along with PBS series Ready, Jet, Go!™ Additional experts from NOAA, NSF, and NASA will talk about the eclipse, space weather, and why we study the sun.

Gates will open at 8:30 AM CDT, so come early to visit booths and exhibits, which will include hands-on activities and take-home giveaways from various STEM organizations. Solar eclipse glasses will be provided and food will be available for purchase.

The event ends at 2:00 PM CDT, but some booths will remain open until the gates close at 3:30 PM CDT.
