The Exploratorium continues its 20-year tradition of bringing eclipses to you—we’re traveling to the NSF’s Cerro Tololo Observatory in Chile to broadcast a total solar eclipse visible overhead. Experience the wonder wherever you are: enjoy our live broadcast, available in both English and Spanish on our eclipse app and our website, or come to the museum to enjoy the big-screen broadcasts in person, in addition to a data-driven sonification by composer Wayne Grim and other eclipse programming.
