The Great North American Eclipse

Thursday, March 21
Faculty Presenter: Andrew Glenn
Time: 11:00 am

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will be visible from much of the Eastern United States. Dubbed the “Great North American Eclipse”, its path of totality will traverse 13 states, including New York. Binghamton will not be in the path of totality but will still see over 97% of the sun obscured by the Moon. Join your friendly neighborhood astrophysicist to learn more about eclipses in general, and how to prepare to safely view this once in a lifetime opportunity from our own campus.
