LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  Looking for the perfect spot to watch the Great American Solar Eclipse? Join WDRB and experts from the Rauch Planetarium for a viewing party at the Kentucky State Fair!

WDRB in the Morning anchor Candyce Clifft and meteorologists Jude Redfield and Katie McGraw will take the stage with experts from the Rauch Planetarium to explain what’s happening as the eclipse happens. We’ll also take questions from the audience about the eclipse.

The Rauch Planetarium will have its portable planetarium on hand for visitors between 9 am and 2 pm for virtual live fly-throughs of the universe. It all happens in the North Wing Lobby on Monday, August 21 from 1:30 to 2:30, and you don’t need tickets. This event is free with admission to the Fair.

Because it won’t be safe to watch the eclipse in Louisville at any time with the naked eye, WDRB will also hand out free eclipse glasses (while supplies last).
