Come join us on the roof of the Nielsen Physics Building where we will observe the sun through telescopes using two different kinds of filters. We will talk about the eclipse and how to view it safely, and show you how to build devices to view the sun indirectly. We’ll also go into the planetarium and run a simulation of the eclipse. Everyone in attendance will receive a free pair of solar glasses. Parking is available in the White Avenue Garage; Handicapped parking is available in front of the Nielsen Physics Building.
Curious about the 2017 Eclipse? Here are a few resources on what it is, where to watch, and how to (safely!) observe it. Also, check out these misconceptions about the Eclipse (e.g., if it's raining, we won't see anything).
