Sidewalk Solar Eclipse Expedition

Sidewalk Solar Eclipse Expedition

Join an On-campus Viewing of the Eclipse

Florida Atlantic’s Astronomical Observatory invites the community to a "sidewalk astronomy" viewing event on April 8 to safely experience the solar eclipse.

Using telescopes and eclipse glasses, viewers will see the sun and the moon as they appear together in the sky. The moon will partially block the view of the sun during the three-hour event.

FAU's Astronomical Observatory is housed under a four-meter diameter dome on the Boca Raton campus of Florida Atlantic University.
