Learn all about Solar Eclipse Activities for Libraries at our virtual trainings!

The Solar Eclipse Activities for Libraries (SEAL) project is delivering eclipse glasses, educational materials, solar science kits, and more to over 6000 libraries for the upcoming solar eclipses. Come join the SEAL team at the Space Science Institute to learn all about the resources available to help you plan programming at your library for the 2023 annular eclipse and the 2024 total eclipse! We'll review the SEAL project, go over the contents of the circulating solar viewing kits, demonstrate a hands-on activity, and more. Register for one of the five SEAL virtual trainings here.

NASA@ My Library partner NISE Net presents Eclipse Webinar

The 2023 Annular Solar Eclipse (October 14, 2023) and the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse (April 8, 2024) are right around the corner! During both events, all of North America will have at least a partial solar eclipse. During this online workshop, we learned more about the science of solar eclipses and the many resources available to engage your audiences in these exciting celebrations. Presenters shared their insights, experiences, and expertise, as well as information about new resources that will be available for 2023 and 2024.
