Solar Eclipse At CU
Students gather outside the ENS observatory on August 21 to see the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse in 99 years. Telescopes with solar filters were set up on the lawn, and eclipse glasses were also provided. The event was also projected on a screen inside the observatory. Although the full eclipse itself did not occur until around 2:30 p.m., people began arriving on site as soon as 1 p.m. in hopes of securing a good viewing spot.
