Solar Eclipse Event at Folsom Field
Start Date: 5/20/2012Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 5/20/2012End Time: 8:30 PM
Event Description:
Late Sunday afternoon May 20 the entire mid- and western US will see a "bite" taken out of the sun as the moon moves in front of it - the best solar eclipse the US has seen in more than ten years. And on the afternoon of June 5 the planet Venus will cross in front of the sun, something that won't be seen again for a century!

CU will host free eclipse watching at Folsom Stadium from 6:00 - 8:15 pm. Sunday May 20. The partial eclipse starts at 6:22 pm; maximum eclipse is at 7:30 and sunset 7:50. Anyone who has purchased eclipse-watching glasses at McGuckin or Fiske will be admitted free. Gate will open at the stadium at 5:30pm. Otherwise you can buy glasses for $2 at the stadium – until supplies run out! We suggest PLANNING AHEAD and picking up glasses from McGuckins or Fiske well in advance. There are no events planned for Denver. Fiske Planetarium can mail 25 eclipse-watching glasses for $35. The web-site has more information, including short videos on how to watch safely.
