Join us at the heart of Rochester’s Total Solar Eclipse efforts at the RMSC as we celebrate with a 3-day festival, ROC The Eclipse! The festival will include a variety of exhibitors with hands-on activities, science engagements, solar telescope viewing, planetarium shows, speakers, lectures, and live entertainment throughout the three days, and access to some of Rochester’s favorite food trucks. 

Featured speakers include Dr. Phil Plait, aka the Bad Astronomer, and Cate Larsen, the Groovy Geologist.

Please note that the purchase of a ticket includes admission to the RMSC Museum & Science Center and Strasenburgh Planetarium. Access to outdoor activities including food trucks and telescope viewing, the merchandise area, and the large lecture hall (Eisenhart Auditorium) is not a part of ticketed admission and will be available to all during the festival as space permits.
