Solar Eclipse 2012: Where to Watch From in Fair Oaks

A solar eclipse will impress over the Northern California skies Sunday, May 20. Check out this list of where in Fair Oaks you can catch the best views and learn from experts at the same time!

We know. On the weekends, you may be find yourself away from home, but somewhere in the Sacramento Area or around Northern California. With a big event like the annular solar eclipse coming up Sunday we thought we'd help you find a viewing event closer than you thought. The full annular solar eclipse won't be visible in Sacramento or the San Francisco Bay Area, instead area locals will only be able to view a partial solar eclipse.

This list includes a few select locations outside of Fair Oaks, but stays within Sacramento. And remember to .

Fair Oaks

The Donor Plaza Park Bluffs, above Fair Oaks Bridge, will present a great place to check out not only of the eclipse but the greater Sacramento area. Be sure to show up early, though. If this particular eclipse is a popular one, space will fill up quick and no one wants to find themself on the edge of a 100-foot cliffside with nothing but shoulder room.


The Discovery Museum Science & Space Center (3615 Auburn Blvd, Sacramento 95821) will have an eclipse party, 5:30 - 7:30 pm. The evening includes a program explaining eclipses and safe viewing techniques (each participant will receive a special eclipse viewer). During the actual eclipse, families are invited to enjoy their own picnic dinners in our nature area. Then there will be a planetarium show featuring the planets and constellations visible as darkness falls. You may register at the Museum or over the phone by calling 916-808-3942.
