A solar eclipse viewing will be accessible at Chico State on Aug 21.

The Chico Del Sol event hosted by the university offers the opportunity to students on campus and the Chico community, to safely watch and learn more about the solar eclipse. It is expected to take place over 2.5 hours.

The viewing will be located by the Glenn Hall Lawn area from 9:15 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.

A solar eclipse is defined as when the sun, moon and Earth line up, and for a period of time, the moon stops sunlight from reaching Earth. After the moon begins obstructing the sun at around 9 a.m., Chico will experience an 80 percent path of totality by approximately 10:16 a.m.

Viewing glasses, cards and pinhole cameras will be provided to safely view the historic event.

Further information can be reached at NASA’s Total Eclipse 2017 website.
