Texas may not be in the totality zone when the sun and moon cross paths during the solar eclipse, but Lone Star State onlookers can enjoy a partial eclipse during the outdoor watch party. Visitors will gather on the Museum Plaza to partake in all sorts of sun-sational eclipse excitement, from a live NASA feed of the total eclipse, to an eclipse-themed photo booth, pinhole cameras with the Perot Museum TECH Truck, miniature solar systems, and other out-of-this-world space activities.

Perot Museum educators will be on hand with tips regarding how to safely watch the partial eclipse using a sun spotter. They will also offer up fun facts about meteorites, explain why the sun and moon appear the same size during an eclipse, and more. Sun- or space-themed attire is encouraged.

Solar Eclipse glasses will be available for guests. Eye protection is still important, even during a partial eclipse. The outdoor event is free and open to the public. General admission fees apply for indoor visits.
