ROCHESTER, N.Y. – People danced under the Strasenburgh Planetarium dome at the Silent Disco for a “Galactic Getdown” on Saturday night.

It was an after-hours event, catered to those 21 and older.

“We’ve been doing these After Darks at least once every couple of months, and we just said, you know what, the eclipse is this weekend — we have to party at some point,” said Dan Schneiderman, event producer with the Rochester Museum & Science Center.

There was a bar, food trucks and trivia fans got to try their hands at some “space” trivia as well.
