Saturday with a Scientist: Annular Eclipse

10:30 am - 2:00 pm

View the annular eclipse with the KENS 5 Weather Team!

Join Bill Taylor, Weather Chief, and Paul Mireles, meteorologist, at the Witte Museum during the annular eclipse. Taylor and Mireles will be on-site to answer your questions about solar movement, what to expect during an eclipse and the importance of safety while viewing one.

Then, stick around and learn more about what you just witnessed at the Witte Museum’s Last Contact Party from 1 – 4 p.m.!


The partial Annular Eclipse will begin around 10:23 a.m. in San Antonio with the peak of the “ring of fire” eclipse happening around 11:54 a.m. Visitors during this time will receive complimentary eclipse glasses with Museum Admission (while supplies last) for safe viewing from the museum campus, which is in the path of the eclipse. Announcements will be made and all guests will be invited to go outside and experience the eclipse maximum.
