This solar eclipse is the biggest event to ever affect this community, and we want you to help us document it! What do you want to remember about this exciting time? Pop in and fill out a questionnaire for the capsule or bring us a special item to include. Make your memories a part of this project!

We will display the capsule’s contents at the Pennyroyal Area Museum during the eclipse weekend. The capsule will be sealed the following week and placed in a special location for safekeeping. We will open the capsule on Monday, April 8, 2024 when the next solar eclipse crosses the continental United States. Where do you think you’ll be by then?
