On Monday, August 21, 2017, The Great American Eclipse will occur in San Diego. We’ll be hosting multiple events at the Fleet Science Center that morning and would love to have you come join us! We’ll also be hosting a number of different run up events and have our resident astronomer, Dr. Lisa Will, available for interview in the days and weeks leading up to the actual event as well.

The eclipse will be visible from 9:07 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. on August 21. It will reach its maximum point of eclipse in San Diego at 10:23 a.m. Totality will be visible from other parts of the country, but in San Diego we will only see a partial eclipse. We won’t see another solar eclipse until 2023, so don’t miss this one!

Hear Retired Boxing Champion’s Inspirational Story at JCC
Sep 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Lawrence Family JCC will screen the short documentary, Vaden Versus, followed by a motivational program including a question and answer session with “The Ultimate” Vaden, himself.

Vaden’s story goes from triumph to tragedy back to triumph again.  In a 1999 title fight, the world champion boxer knocked out Stephan Johnson. While Vaden knew his opponent was hurt, he had no idea he would die 15 days later. Wracked with guilt, the San Diego native was forced to deal with the consequences of his victory. Admits Vaden, “I’ve been in very dark places, almost forgetting how to live.  But,” he continues, “I got back in the ring, worked through fear and guilt and learned how to breathe again.”
