Description

Dear Friends of McCormick Observatory,

On August 21 there will be a total eclipse of the Sun visible from the United States for the first time since 1979. To help you prepare for the eclipse, Prof. Edward Murphy from the Department of Astronomy will give a lecture and demonstrate safe solar observing at the auditorium of the Harrison Institute in the Small Special Collections Library on Tuesday August 8 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. During the program, we will discuss what to expect during the eclipse, where to go see the eclipse if you can travel to it, and how to safely observe the eclipse. As a bonus, everyone who attends will get a free pair of safe solar observing glasses.

Parking is available in the nearby Central Grounds Parking Garage at 400 Emmet Street.

Sincerely,

Edward Murphy
