PITTSBURGH – It’s Super Bowl of science. Monday marks the first total solar eclipse over the U.S. in 38 years.
People packed the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh.
The crowd is waiting with the rest of the nation for the once-in-a-lifetime solar event.
The moon’s shadow will darken skies on approximately a 70-mile-wide path from Oregon to South Carolina.
The Science Center will stage three observation areas for this solar event. Each observation post will have a solar scope and a sun funnel and visitors will be able to share eclipse glasses during the two-hour spectacle.
Guests reserved seating inside the planetarium, where they will enjoy a view of the eclipse from the south, delivered by a feed from NASA.
Channel 11’s Shelley Bortz will be covering the eclipse. You can watch it live on wpxi.com.
