See the highlights of totality from the total solar eclipse of March 8/9 2016! The Exploratorium and NASA went to Woleai, a tiny atoll in the Federated States of Micronesia, where we broadcast the eclipse live. Totality began at 11:38 a.m. on March 9 in Woleai, Micronesia, which was 5:38 p.m. on March 8 in San Francisco. This hands-on science video explains Einstein’s light-bending concept using nothing more than a wine glass and an LED light representing a star. On March 8, 2016, 5pm PST the Exploratorium will present a live webcast of the total solar eclipse in Micronesia. Join us here online or in person at the Exploratorium.
Whether you want to call it a “Blood Moon”, “Harvest Moon” or a “Supermoon” ...the rare total Lunar Eclipse happening on September 27th hasn't happened in 32 years, and won't happen again for another 18 years.

“La luz roja que ilumina la Luna durante un eclipse es luz del Sol que emana de todos los atardeceres y amaneceres en la Tierra durante ese isntante!”
¡No te pierdas el Día de la ingeniería en el Exploratorium y ver el espectacular eclipse lunar!
Cities are known to produce a lot of light pollution, making it a challenge for astronomy enthusiasts to view the heavens within city limits. For us in the SF Bay Area, these issues apply, however, exciting results can still be attained between sky gazing and learning about how we all fit into this big thing we call "space".
Urban Astronomer Paul Salazar, The Exploratorium's very own Adam Esposito and more demonstrate how to deal with the parameters and the unforgettable experiences that await with simple to no equipment, the right conditions, and some decent timing. What coin would just barely cover the full moon? You may be surprised. TI director (and recovering astrophysicist) Linda Shore explains how our brains distort the actual size of the moon. Is water ice present or absent in a crater near the moon's south pole? NASA’s Lunar CRater Observing and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission is seeking a definitive answer. Join Exploratorium staff for a special Webcast featuring live coverage of LCROSS crashing into the moon! Our team will be broadcasting live from the 36" Refractor Telescope at Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton, where we’ll watch the impact and investigate how this intentional crash could reveal the existence of water ice. On August 1, 2008, a total solar eclipse occurred as the new moon moved directly between the sun and the earth. The moon's umbral shadow fell on parts of Canada, Greenland, the Arctic Ocean, Russia, Mongolia, and China. The Exploratorium's eclipse expedition team (our fifth!) Webcast the eclipse live from the remote Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwestern China near the Mongolian border. On March 29, 2006, a total solar eclipse occurred as the moon moved directly between the earth and the sun. The moon's shadow fell on the earth, first darkening the eastern tip of Brazil, and then moved across the Atlantic Ocean to make landfall in Ghana, Africa. It continued moving northeast through Nigeria, Niger, Libya, Egypt, across the Mediterranean and into Turkey, where an Exploratorium team was waiting.
