First Date: A Fleet Love Story

The Fleet has members throughout the United States. But Dr. Stephen Skaper and his wife, Dr. Laura Facci, are our only international members. While living in San Diego, Stephen joined the Fleet the year we opened, and over the past 45 years, he and Laura have supported us while they lived here, then in England and now in Italy, where they are semi-retired.

From Hawaii With Love!

 Membership is the perfect gift for family and friends!

Meet two of the Fleet Science Center’s most loyal supporters! Mitch Pflugh and Will Pflugh are two of the Fleet’s most loyal friends—going back to the 1980s! Mitch is a former board trustee and Will oversaw the construction of the Fleet’s building expansion in the late 1990s. Even though they moved to Hawaii, they haven't forgotten how much they enjoyed visiting the Fleet.

Get Ready for the Upcoming Solar Eclipse!

By Dr. Lisa Will, Resident Astronomer at the Fleet Science Center.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, San Diegans will be able to observe a partial solar eclipse. It will be visible as a total solar eclipse within a narrow path up to 70 miles wide, traversing the contiguous United States from Oregon to South Carolina. Over half of the population of the United States lives within driving distance (400 miles) of the path of the totality, which makes this an amazing opportunity for eclipse enthusiasts.
