    On June 15, 2017, Clark Planetarium hosts its Through the Looking Glass Gala in celebration of these astronomical events and as the preface to this summer’s Great American Total Solar Eclipse.

    Clark Planetarium once again welcomes Dr. Phil Plait, The Bad Astronomer as our keynote speaker for our Through the Looking Glass Gala. Prior to his popular blog, Bad Astronomy, Dr. Plait worked on the COBE satellite and as a member of the Hubble Space Telescope team. His presentation “When the Moon Eats the Sun” will reveal common misunderstandings about eclipses and prepare for optimal and safe solar astronomy.

    Funds raised through this event will directly support our science education programming.

    Tickets are $125 per person, or $200 per couple.
