Centennial solar eclipse viewing party

Centennial solar eclipse viewing party

April 8, 2024 - 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Robinson Circle
Open to Students

A total solar eclipse will be visible across North America on April 8. While Glassboro is not in the path of totality, a partial solar eclipse will occur between 2:10 and 4:35 p.m. The best time to see the eclipse is 3:23 p.m. (weather permitting). Bring your colleagues and friends to enjoy telescopes, music, photo stations and more.

Free Centennial solar eclipse glasses are available while supplies last and will be distributed from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in front of Science Hall, Robinson Hall, Chamberlain Student Center and Holly Pointe Commons. Any leftover glasses will be available from 3 to 4 p.m. at Robinson Circle.

Please note, regular sunglasses are not safe for direct solar viewing. These special solar eclipse glasses block out 98% of the sun's light. Without proper solar filters, viewing the sun can damage your eyesight. 

This event is sponsored by the Edelman Planetarium, College of Science & Mathematics, and Chamberlain Student Center & Campus Activities.
