View solar eclipse at Zacheis Planetarium

The planetarium is located on Richardson Ave., on the green in front of Richardson Hall.

The Adams State University Zacheis Planetarium will host a public viewing session for the solar eclipse from 10:45 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21, on the sidewalk outside the planetarium. There will be a couple of telescopes with solar filters, and one projecting an image of the Sun onto a screen. Safe solar glasses will be available (while supplies last, $1 donation requested).

In Alamosa, the Sun will be about 85 percent covered at maximum eclipse, which occurs at 11:46 a.m.

This event is free and open to the public. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
