A (Nearly) Total Eclipse is Coming

April 1 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join University of Olivet Adjunct Professor of Astronomy Eric Sullivan for an informational session about the Solar Eclipse that will occur this year on Monday, April 8th. Here in Marshall, the eclipse will start at approximately 1:50 pm & will end about 4:30 pm. Although the eclipse will not reach totality in our area, it will still be an amazing event with the Moon covering approximately 95% of the Sun.

Sullivan will share methods to observe & record this event, what to expect, & how to enjoy the eclipse safely. Those interested in viewing the eclipse are reminded to view it with approved viewing glasses; all registered attendees will receive a pair as part of this event. Eric has a Bachelor of Science in Astrophysics from Michigan State University & is a Marshall resident.

Registration required. This program is intended for ages 18+; however, younger learners with an interest in the topic are also welcome to attend.
