  • Standard
    • Off-Peak & Peak: $12/adult | $8/child | $12/senior citizen

An Annular Solar Eclipse happens when the moon moves directly in front of the sun, leaving the sun’s outer edges visible, forming an annulus, or a ring of fire around the moon. And for the first time in many years, you will be able to witness the annular solar eclipse from Singapore! The next time will only be in 2063.

Pop in Science Centre Singapore with your little ones where you’ll be able to find dozens of telescopes set up at the Ecogarden to witness the sight of the sun being reduced to a ring of fire!

You can reserve your space for the event from 25 Dec 2019, Wednesday, from 7 pm onwards.
