SCIENCE 1242, Course Code: 4493
On August 21, 2017, the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental United States in almost 40 years will take place. From Oregon to South Carolina, millions of people will gather along the path of totality to experience this tremendous opportunity. The greatest duration will take place between Marion and Anna, Illinois and will last about 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Here at Heartland Community College we will see 93% obscuration that will last a few minutes. Find out how and why eclipses take place through engaging, hands-on activities. Then, put on your solar eclipse glasses and head outside to soak up some sun (or lack of sun) and watch the eclipse. WARNING: At no time during the eclipse will it be safe to look directly at the sun. Solar eclipse glasses should be worn at all times while observing the eclipse on campus.
