There are many places in Richland County to get a good view of the total solar eclipse and even more programs building up to the event. See below for some and share in comments if you know of other places!
1. Shadows & Science at Congaree National Park complete with guided hikes. See it surrounded by nature.
2. Richland Library's Summer Learning Challenge includes a bit of eclipse for everyone.
3. South Carolina State Museum...they have a planetarium after all!
4. Your own backyard after making your own.
Protect your eyes during the “before and after” partial eclipse phases, but remove your eclipse glasses when the sky goes dark during totality.
