Live streaming the solar eclipse in the Topping Room from 8 am – 12 pm!
A partial solar eclipse will be visible from Southern California, while certain areas of the country will be able to witness a total solar eclipse. We will project a live stream of the eclipse in the Topping Room.
A solar eclipse occurs when the sun is partially or completely obscured by the moon, revealing the solar corona. These events are rare; the next solar eclipse that will be visible from North America will not happen until the year 2024. More information on the eclipse can be found by visiting https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/.
Remember: You should never look at the sun directly without equipment that’s specifically designed for solar viewing.
Do not use standard binoculars or telescopes to watch the eclipse, as the light could severely damage your eyes. Sunglasses also do NOT count as protection when attempting to look directly at the sun.
