Solar Eclipse Viewing Party @ Meadowbrook

April 08, 2024

Trying to find a good viewing spot for the 2024 solar eclipse? Want to avoid the crowds headed south? Northwest Indiana will still see a 96% cover, near-total solar eclipse to this day. Celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon at Meadowbrook Nature Preserve!
At 1:30 p.m., we will gather near the pavilion at Meadowbrook and learn about how solar eclipses happen and some of the history and traditions surrounding eclipses. Around 2:02 pm Central Time, the moon will cross celestial paths with the sun for a total solar eclipse. 

This is a viewing party—we encourage you to dress up and wear your sun & moon-themed attire. The eclipse will be noticeable from about 12:50pm to 3:20 pm CT, so stop by anytime to celebrate and view the eclipse. ISO-certified glasses will be provided to the first 100 attendees!
Most activities will take place in the pavilion for the best view of the eclipse. Some guided talks may occur along the ½ mile-accessible trail of flat, compacted gravel. This trail connects to the rest of the Meadowbrook trail complex which varies in terrain from gravel and dirty paths with some moderate inclines and stairs
