Join the Urban Park Rangers for an opportunity to view the much-anticipated solar eclipse. Though only partially visible from New York City, the moon will pass directly in front of the sun, casting a shadow that will surely make for a memorable viewing experience. Learn more about eclipses and why they occur. Borrow a pair of safety viewing glasses or take a look through the solar lens telescope. The next solar eclipse visible in the state will be in 2044.
