Missouri S&T Eclipse Day
A solar eclipse of the sun will cut across the U.S. on Aug. 21, 2017. At S&T, the near-total eclipse will peak at 1:15 pm, when the moon obscures 99.8 percent of the sun. Join your fellow classmates and colleagues to witness this once-in-a-lifetime event on the Havener Center lawn on campus. The last total solar eclipse in Missouri was in 1869, almost 150 years ago!
Join us on Havener Center Lawn (11 a.m. - 3 p.m.)
11:47 a.m. – moon begins crossing the sun
1:15 p.m. – maximum eclipse begins (99.8 percent of the sun obscured)
2:43 p.m. – solar eclipse ends
Whether you plan to be walking on sunshine or dancing in the dark on Eclipse Day 2017, get pumped up for the big event by tuning in to the official Missouri S&T Solar Eclipse Playlist. Got a tune to recommend? Then turn around, bright eyes, and let us know on Facebook.
Play it safe. Do not view the eclipse without the proper eyewear. The S&T Store has a limited number of eclipse glasses for sale, as does STARS (the S&T Astronomical Research Society, a student organization). Student Life and student organizations will also hand out a limited supply of sunglasses the day of the eclipse at Havener Center.
