August 13, 2017 - 1:00pm-3:00pm (ended)

Put on your costume and join us for an Outer Space cosplay party with short films and entertaining movie clips. 

We will celebrate the coming August Eclipse by dressing as the sun or moon or any celestial body, entity, or Sci Fi character. No Costume? Come anyway to see the costumes and movies. 

There are two costume categories: Ages 10-14 and 14-Adult. All those coming in costume will receive a prize if they register by August 4th. Registration required only to receive a prize. Be sure to indicate which category you are in. Drop-ins also welcome. To register, email: ischneider@cityofberkeley.info

For more information, call: 510-981-6150.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, there will be an eclipse of the Sun visible throughout the U.S. and all of North America.  People in a narrow path from Oregon to South Carolina will see a spectacular total eclipse, with the Moon briefly covering the Sun, and day turning into night.  Everyone else (an estimated 500 million people, including all of us in the Bay Area) will see a partial eclipse, where the Moon covers a good part of the Sun.  Special glasses or viewing techniques are needed to look at the Sun safely during a partial eclipse (sunglasses are NOT enough).  

At the conclusion of the program, everyone will receive a pair of certified safe eclipse-viewing glasses, courtesy of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
