Come to Oregon State University’s Corvallis campus for a fun, informative, family-friendly weekend to learn about and experience this rare celestial event - the Total Solar Eclipse. Join us in celebrating Oregon State’s 150th anniversary and the university’s lead role for the Oregon NASA Space Grant, which provides education, research and public outreach to inspire the next generation of explorers.
From rockets, robots and stargazing to music, art and a movie, there’s something of interest for everyone. All events are on campus and open to the public, with ample parking.
On Saturday, Aug. 19 and Sunday, Aug. 20, enjoy hands-on activities, interactive workshops, informative talks, exhibits, art and crafts, an outdoor movie, concert and more. All activities except the concert are free and open to everyone. Food and drinks available for purchase.
On Monday, Aug. 21, watch the eclipse from a great viewing location on campus and get free solar eclipse glasses.
OSU is in the path of totality, where the sky will go dark for about 2 minutes at 10:17 a.m.
Join the party as the moon begins blocking the sun about 9 a.m. Before and after the period of darkness, enjoy fun activities and outdoor games.
