The Eclipse at KU

August 21, 2017


Join the KU Department of Physics and Astronomy and the KU Natural History Museum at the Shenk Sports Complex to view the eclipse of the sun and learn more about this solar phenomenon when it peaks at about 1:10 pm. Free eclipse glasses provided.* The family-friendly, drop-in event includes science and art activities, telescope viewing with astronomers, and food trucks that will offer lunch.

*Remember, it’s never safe to look at the sun, even with regular sunglasses. To safely view the eclipse, you will need special eclipse glasses.
