On Monday, August 21, a total eclipse of the Sun, dubbed as the Great American Total Solar Eclipse, will cause a large swath of the U.S. to fall into total daytime darkness. But even though Vermont is not in the path of totality, you can still view and experience the phenomenon, as a partial solar eclipse in Vermont, with proper protection for your eyes.
On eclipse day, members of the Norwich physics faculty will host an on-campus viewing event that will include showing you how to safely view the solar eclipse. Check back soon for a schedule of activities and other details.
