Observe the Solar Eclipse at Tellus!

Join us to experience the first total solar eclipse to come across the continental United States since 1970. While Cartersville will only see a 97% eclipse, we will have a live feed in the Theater from the best possible location in the total eclipse path with Tellus Astronomer David Dundee and WSB-TV meteorologist Glenn Burns. Meanwhile, Tellus staff will give you a play by play as the eclipse progresses.

Outside, you can safely view the eclipse in the Tellus Observatory and on the Museum lawn through smaller telescopes. You may also want to purchase a pair of eclipse glasses from the Tellus Store.

In the Bentley Planetarium, catch a showing of Totality to learn more about eclipses, or experience the Live Tour which will feature the solar eclipse!

Please remember, the Sun is always dangerous to look at directly. Never observe the Sun without proper filters or without someone who knows how to observe the Sun safely.

There will not be another total solar eclipse to cross the continental United States until 2024.
