at Center City Park in downtown Greensboro
An All-American Solar Eclipse!
The first to cross the entire country in 99 years!
We will see 93.76% coverage here in Greensboro.
Come downtown to Center City Park! March for Science-Greensboro is partnering with several organizations, bands, and citizen scientists to organize a fun and safe viewing of the first US-only total solar eclipse in 99 years!
"This is the first time a total solar eclipse has gone from one American coast to the other since 1918. It will also be the first time in U.S. history that a total solar eclipse will make landfall exclusively on U.S. soil, meaning it will not be visible from any other country. (This technically happened in 1257 — but, of course, the United States wasn't a country way back then.)
For that reason, some are calling this upcoming celestial event the 'Great American Eclipse.'"
