Here’s a look at some other eclipse-related programming:

TV Documentary: The April 3 episode of “Nova” will shine a light on the total solar eclipse that will be visible in northeastern Ohio on April 8. The one-hour documentary will air at 8 p.m.

The April 8 eclipse will sweep across the U.S. from Texas to Maine and will be the last total solar eclipse until 2044.

The extraordinary astronomical event will plunge locations in the path of totality into darkness for more than four minutes in some places – nearly twice as long as the last American eclipse in 2017.

The episode will offer instructions on how to watch an eclipse safely and follow scientists as they work to unlock secrets of the sun – from why its atmosphere is hundreds of times hotter than its surface to what causes solar storms and how we might one day predict them.

Pink Floyd: The “Darkside of the Moon – Solar Eclipse Show” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at Kent Stage, 175 E. Main St., Kent. Tickets range from $30 to $24 and can be purchased HERE.
