Solar Eclipse Experience

Solar Eclipse Experience

Nesbitt Academic Commons
Penn State Wilkes-Barre
Monday, August 21
1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

What happens when the sun, the moon, and the Earth all line up in a row? A spectacular phenomenon known as a total solar eclipse. Join us at Penn State Wilkes-Barre on August 21 to view and discuss this unusual event!

“This is a very rare and exciting experience for us, even in regions where the eclipse is only partial. We won’t get a chance to see another solar eclipse in the U.S. until 2024, and then again in 2045.” — Professor Violet Mager

A live stream of the total eclipse will be broadcasting in the Library Computer Lab in the Nesbitt Academic Commons. Weather permitting, the campus’ solar telescope will be available for viewing.

This is a family-friendly event, with free solar eclipse safety glasses and free snacks, as well as coloring and drawing contests for the kids!
