Solar Eclipse

  • 08/21/2017
  • 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Reedy Creek Parking Lot, Umstead State Park (off Harrison Ave)
  • 54

Registration


We will have eclipse viewing glasses donated by Friends of State Parks.  Because the sun cannot be viewed directly without eclipse glasses (except for the few moments of totality), everyone who wants to watch it's progress will need these special glasses. And, we will have a telescope with a solar lens. 

You will need to pre-register to guarantee glasses.  You can sign-up your family members by indicating the number guests.

Please try to car pool so everyone has a parking space.

In Raleigh, coverage will start around 1:30pm and be 93 percent at 2:45 p.m. The eclipse ends about 4 p.m.

Allow time to park and get your glasses. We will start handing out the glasses at noon for those who signed up.
