Hands-on History: Eye on the Sky

April 6 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Hands-on History is a free activity series every first and third Saturday of every month. Open to the public!

On April 8th, 2024, for about 4 minutes and 27 seconds, New York will have the rare and beautiful opportunity to view a total solar eclipse! Looking directly at a solar eclipse without the proper eyewear can cause permanent damage to your eyesight. Do you have the right equipment to view this amazing celestial event?

Come by King Manor to make an emergency solar eclipse viewer and learn about the history of solar eclipse tourism and viewing!

This viewer can be made and used by all ages.
