NASA will be at the Austin Nature and Science Center the weekend before the total solar eclipse. All weekend you can hear NASA scientists talk about eclipses and oceans on other planets and learn the latest news from the Mars Rover Mission. Before you leave get a selfie with the 2D version of the Perseverance rover and the Mars-scape.  Don’t forget to check out the ROV-E, a six-wheeled rover that will be driving about the grounds of the Nature Center. While you’re here visit the planetarium and engage in hands-on activities that will prepare you for viewing the eclipse.
