Winston-Salem is just outside the path of totality for the first total solar eclipse in the U.S. since 1978!

Join us to learn about the difference between a lunar and a solar eclipse, how to access NASA data about the eclipse, how to experience an eclipse safely, and how to make your own viewing device.
In the Winston-Salem area, according to Eclipsewise.com, the eclipse will be visible starting about 1:12 p.m., reaching its maximum coverage at 2:41, and ending about 4:03. Come at any time during the eclipse and stay as long as you like.
