The great American eclipse will sweep across the U.S. on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, the first day of the Fall 2017 semester. Over Atlanta, the eclipse will start shortly after 1 PM, maximum overlap will occur at 2:37 PM, and the sun and moon will part ways completely at 3:57 PM.

The College of Sciences and the Office of Undergraduate Education, with participation from various Georgia Tech colleges and units, have arranged for the Georgia Tech community to safely experience this rare solar spectacle. The College of Sciences has just announced the places on campus where solar eclipse glasses will be distributed at noon on Aug. 21, 2017: http://www.cos.gatech.edu/hg/item/594380

By Kessler Campanile at 1-4 PM, everyone can participate in various activities:

  • Watch a livestream of the eclipse from the Georgia Tech Observatory
  • Sample other safe-viewing options, including pinhole cameras and solar-filter telescopes
  • Collect real-time data of temperature and visibility changes during the course of the eclipse
  • Learn about eclipse-related research at Georgia Tech
  • Experience an interactive auditory journey through the solar system
  • Enjoy astronomy-themed music and snacks

Those unable to go to the Campanile can participate in other ways.  They could use #GTEclipse2017 in Twitter and Instagram, view the livestream on YouTube through www.cos.gatech.edu/Eclipse, or comment on Facebook, http://bit.ly/2uDRaPN.
