Event Description

ECLIPSE WATCH AT NORWICH UNIVERSITY

Monday, August 21

1:20–4 p.m.

On August 21, a partial solar eclipse will be visible in Vermont in a celestial spectacle you don’t want to miss. But remember it is DANGEROUS to look directly at the Sun, even during a partial eclipse. Norwich faculty and staff have organized activities to help you SAFELY watch the Moon take a bite out of the Sun. Activities take place at the following locations:

WEINTZ COURTYARD (BY ALDEN PARTRIDGE STATUE), NORWICH UNIVERSITY

• Norwich physics professors Art Pallone, Tabetha Hole, and Elisabeth Atems will help you view the eclipse with special equipment and certified eclipse viewing glasses.

• Math professor Cathy Frey will give visual eclipse demonstrations.

CABOT 085 AUDITORIUM, NORWICH UNIVERSITY

• Relax in Cabot 085 from 2-4 p.m. for live streaming of the total eclipse.

RITZER-DAVENPORT ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY, 763 SOUTH MAIN ST. (ENTER THROUGH GARAGE)

• Norwich University Chaplain “Rev” Wick—a board member of the Vermont Astronomical Society—invites you to his observatory to safely view the event through his specially outfitted telescope and with eclipse glasses.

(When crossing Main Street, use the crosswalk. Be safe!)

Have Your Own Glasses?

If you purchased eclipse glasses and want to make sure they’re certified for Sun viewing, bring them along for the professors to check out.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
