Solar Eclipse Viewing at MSU

Monday, August 21, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. for all ages

A total solar eclipse is one of the most amazing natural phenomena one can experience. The moon passes in front of the sun, blocking its light in part or totally for up to three hours. This incredible wonder has not been seen over the continental United States since 1979. While not in the path of totality, those in Greene County can expect to experience the eclipse at about 96% totality. Missouri State University College of Natural and Applied Sciences invites the public to safely view the eclipse from Plaster Stadium, weather permitting. Viewing goggles will be available. Free parking will be available in the parking lot on East Trafficway across from Hammons Field, with shuttle service provided to the MSU campus.

More details about the MSU Viewing are available at MSU's website.
