An Exploratorium and NASA Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum Event

Overnight eclipse viewing party at Exploratorium begins July 31, 2008 at 9pm. and continues through Friday, August 1 in the wee hours.

San Francisco's Exploratorium brings its fifth eclipse expedition team to remote Xinjiang Province in Northwestern China, very close to the Mongolian border, where the Exploratorium will webcast a total solar eclipse live to the world. Spend the Night at the Exploratorium! See the eclipse in person live at the Exploratorium. Pack your sleeping bag and camp out on the museum floor for an overnight eclipse party...or come to the viewing party in Second Life and enjoy the live webcast, exhibits, and music.
