Total Solar Eclipse 2024 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum April 8, 2024

Are you ready for the celestial event of the decade? On April 8th, 2024, a total solar eclipse will be visible from parts of North America, making this an incredibly rare and exciting event that shouldn't be missed! During a total solar eclipse, the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, causing the Sun to be completely blocked out for a few brief minutes. The sky will darken, stars will appear, and temperatures will drop - it's a truly unforgettable experience that will leave you in awe of the universe. To witness this incredible spectacle, you'll need to be in the path of totality. The path of totality for the 2024 eclipse will stretch from Texas to Maine, passing through cities like Dallas! Even if you're not in the path of totality, you'll still be able to see a partial eclipse from other parts of North America.

Outcry Theatre: The Hobbit

This adaptation of Tolkien’s classic novel is a suspenseful, fast-paced journey through the sometimes dark, sometimes charming, always compelling world of Middle Earth. Bilbo Baggins is a comfortably well-off hobbit with a love for rousing adventure stories. Real adventures, however, are definitely not his cup of tea. So when Gandalf the wizard knocks at Bilbo’s door, bringing with him Thorin Oakenshield, 12 ragged looking dwarfs, and a contract for an adventure to recover the lost treasure of Lonely Mountain, Bilbo could not be less interested—at first. But Bilbo’s love of a good story gets the better of him, and before he knows it, he is off on a perilous quest over mountain and under hill through caves and forest and slimy dark places.
