Watch the partial solar eclipse with Renae and Nick, the astronomy experts at the Peoria Riverfront Museum! On October 14, 2023, there will be a partial solar eclipse visible across all of North America. Here in Peoria, the eclipse will begin at 10:33 AM and end at 1:23 PM. At 11:56 AM, the Moon will be blocking about 60% of the Sun. You cannot watch this with the naked eye! Eclipse shades can be purchased in the museum store for $4, and we will have solar telescopes, pinhole projectors, and Sun-centered activities available for viewers on the museum’s Sun Plaza. If the weather doesn't cooperate, we'll play NASA's livestream of the eclipse in the museum lobby.
