Partial Solar Eclipse Viewing

Saturday, October 14 | 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Brookings Hall steps 1 Brookings Drive

During the Oct. 14 partial solar eclipse, the moon will cover about two-thirds of the sun, as visible from our vantage in St. Louis, MO. 

Faculty in the Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences department and Physics department will host an eclipse-viewing event on the front steps of Brookings Hall.

Participants will safely view the eclipse through up to three different telescopes. The telescopes will also capture and project images of the eclipse onto larger computer monitor screens, for further ease of viewing. One of the telescopes will be a special H-alpha telescope with filters to allow viewers to see textures on the surface of the sun. 

Free eclipse-viewing sunglasses will also be available for the first 250 attendees.
