Robot Explorers with Solar Eclipses

Near the end of the 20th century, unmanned probes were launched into the far reaches of the solar system. Exploration continues. Many of these robust spacecraft still are operational, beaming their knowledge back to Earth every day. Narrated by Brent Spiner of TV’s Star Trek: The Next Generation. In anticipation of the Great American Eclipse on Aug. 21, Solar Eclipses will explain the phenomena and how to view them.

Showtimes: 1, 3 and 5 p.m. daily and at 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday
