Gather on the Garden’s lawns to marvel at the sky as the moon passes between the Earth and sun.

Join  Brooklyn Botanic Garden in observing the effects of the eclipse on its collections. Will blooms be fooled into closing? Will leaves turn in? Participate in a Garden-wide experiment. The eclipse will last from 2:10 to 4:36 p.m., peaking at 3:25 p.m.

Blankets are welcome. Outside food is not permitted but may be purchased at the Canteen.
