Partial Solar Eclipse and Earth Day Celebration at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Join fellow enthusiasts and witness nature’s own spectacle as a partial solar eclipse graces the Central Florida skies from 1:48 PM to 4:17 PM. From 2:00 – 5:00 PM, visit the Rocket Garden to pick up your eclipse safety glasses, while supplies last, and enjoy music by roaming DJ Larry. This special day isn’t just your chance to celebrate the Sun – you can also get a head start on your Earth Day festivities! Stop by booths hosted by local businesses and conservation groups to hear firsthand about their sustainability practices and how they help our community – and the rest of the planet. You can learn about solar energy through hands-on activities at our education stations on the bottom floor of Space Shuttle Atlantis®.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately. If you have a question about the activity itself, please contact the organization administrator listed below.

We will also stream NASA’s live broadcast from various locations in the path of totality on giant screens located in the Rocket Garden.

Astronaut Scholar* Will Jarvis will host a presentation inside Journey To Mars in the morning, then be available the rest of the day to answer questions.


And don’t miss the visitor complex’s S.T.E.A.M. Team, who will be conducting environmentally friendly experiments throughout the visitor complex.

All activities are included with admission.
