Great North American Eclipse

Ryan Observatory

     Catch a late lunch from an on-site food truck and then enjoy a solar eclipse that will maximize at 91% coverage. Sure, you can watch it by yourself in your backyard but imagine the hype of viewing with lots enthusiasts (professionals, amateurs of just plain interested people) in this beautiful little-known observatory in southern Lancaster County.
     Rain or cloud cover? No problem. The eclipse will be live streamed from a sunny location somewhere in the visitor center.
     Note: DT Program Committee has purchased a large supply of approved viewing glasses for your safety and viewing convenience. Registration will include option to volunteer to drive or request a ride from someone else.
