SRJC Planetarium presents: ECLIPSE!

Augusts 16
7pm - Both solar & lunar eclipses have inspired awe & fear throughout human history. Today these events are celebrated, when the sun seems to disappear or the moon turns blood red.

Discover the beauty of eclipses & how to safely observe these amazing phenomena. This show is one night only!
Tickets: $8/General, $5/Students, Seniors & Children 5 to 12. Free parking! Doors open 30 minutes before the show.

Top the Cop - Sonoma Raceway

High school students can square off against Bay Area law enforcement officers on Sonoma Raceway's quarter-mile drag strip when the popular Top the Cops™ program returns as part of the raceway's weekly WEDNESDAY NIGHT Drags program.

The program offers an alternative to illegal street racing & gives teens the chance to race against law enforcement officers, who compete in full uniform in their official vehicles. The program also provides a unique environment for the officers to talk with teens about safe driving & the rules of the road.

The program offers more than just fun racing on the drag strip. Since the program began, at least five Top the Cops high school competitors have entered law enforcement.

Top the Cops will run in conjunction with the Wednesday Night Drags program at Sonoma Raceway, through - Aug. 30. Participants must have a current High School Identification Card & Driver's License & a car that passes a simple technical inspection. Students are given practice runs, which then lead to head-to-head competition against an officer in his/her patrol car.

3:30pm - Gates Open, 5-10pm - Racing.
Cost: $15/Students, $10/Spectators.

Solar Eclipse Information

The Great American Solar Eclipse will pass over California the morning of August 21st affecting our solar resources across the state. That day, between 9-11an, the moon will block out 60-75% of the sun, creating a large scale loss of solar electricity for the state. This unusual event is prompting Energy Upgrade California, a CA Public Utilities Commission program, to remind all of us to Do Your Thing to save electricity during eclipse day as well as every day. California has plenty of wind, geothermal, hydro & natural gas to make sure the grid runs smoothly during the upcoming solar eclipse, but we also have a lot of Californians & small businesses who want to do their thing to help replace the sun when it takes a break. If we all do one thing to save energy, it will add up, for the environment & for the power grid. Californians can take the pledge to learn more & do more, to be energy efficient: Click here for details.
