Eclipse Party at PV

Our Solar Eclipse Party, "Astronomical Andover" is August 21 (Monday) from 1-4pm. The darkest part of the Eclipse is from 2:15 to 2:45pm. Everyone interested in viewing the Eclipse from the Athletic Field seats is invited to come to PV School. We have 1,300 pairs of eclipse glasses for visitors and local astronomers with filtered telescopes and sunoculars (special filtered binoculars) will be there to share the view.


On that day we will also have video from NASA of Totality of the Solar Eclipse (we just get 80%). From 1-4 pm we will stream NASA video taken from satellites, the ISS, the ground, balloons at accompanied by commentary. If it is raining in Andover, it surely will be sunny over part of the Eclipse track! Come to the Veterans' Memorial Performing Arts Center to enjoy the view on the BIG screen.


Starting at 3:30 pm families are welcome to come to the Sunshine Room at PV Primary School to enter the Dome Planetarium Theater and watch half hour programs about the sun, planets, and stars narrated by Tom Hanks, Robert Redford, Walter Cronkite and others. Programs are aimed at students from K through 8th grades. We will be able to fit up to 30 people at a time in the theater.
