ECLIPSE 2017 – historic opportunity!

On August 21, 2017 the Moon’s shape will block up to 90% of the Sun’s rays in the 47374 zip code area. From about 12:50 to 4:00 pm ET the partial Eclipse will be visible on the IUE Campus. The ultimate Partial ECLIPSE will occur about 2:25 pm. We will witness about 90% of an ECLIPSE. How do we know that? Check out the many resources NASA provides, highlighted in the Campus Library ECLIPSE 2017 LibGuide that provides shortcuts to a treasure trove of information and activities. In Indiana the ECLIPSE will not reach Totality (where the sky is completely dark); so Hoosiers should view the ECLIPSE through safe solar glasses or indirect viewing methods, such as a Pin-Hole Projector. … Continued
