Great American Solar Eclipse at Frosty Drew Observatory

Event Date: 
Monday, August 21, 2017

Starting at 10:00 a.m. the Frosty Drew campus will be buzzing with solar activity. Solar telescopes in both white light and hydrogen alpha will be setup for observers to catch a view of the solar photosphere and chromosphere, including views of sunspots, prominence, and filaments on the Sun. We will have solar projectors setup showcasing projected views of the Sun as well as eclipse shades on hand for safe observing of the solar photosphere. The Solar Eclipse starts at 1:30 p.m. and will continue until 4:00 p.m. with maximum eclipse occurring at 2:47 p.m. when the Moon eclipses 65.98% of the Sun. Unfortunately, Frosty Drew Observatory is not along the path of total eclipse. We will experience a partial solar eclipse.
