Solar Eclipse 2024

April 8 @ 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM EDT


On April 8, 2024 join us to slow down, look up, and celebrate our solar system at a rare astronomical event, the last total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States until 2044! New York City will observe 90% percent obstruction and, weather permitting, we’ll get to view this cosmic occurrence together.

We will gather on the grounds of Brooklyn’s historic Green-Wood Cemetery for an afternoon of eclipse viewing with special-edition glasses and telescopes with solar filters, as well as music, hands-on activities, and self-guided tours. The eclipse viewing party is presented by Pioneer Works, Green-Wood, and the Amateur Astronomers Association. This work is supported by the Simons Foundation and is part of its ‘In the Path of Totality’ initiative. The afternoon spectacle will be one that comes around only once a few decades.

Special-edition eclipse viewing glasses will be available on a first come basis. You are welcome to bring a blanket or something comfortable to sit on. This event is free with RSVP. There is no on-site parking.

Note: Please use caution when viewing the solar eclipse. Do not look directly at the sun (not even during an eclipse), unless you are wearing the proper eye protection for viewing.
