Watch the solar eclipse safely; do not look at the sun

Posted on August 18, 2017

The Great American Eclipse will take place Monday, Aug. 21 starting at 11:30 a.m. Looking at the sun for any length of time during the eclipse will damage your eyes. Please be safe! While there are no eclipse glasses available, the attached pinhole viewer sheet gives directions on how you can watch the eclipse safely.

You can also attend MSUM’s eclipse viewing event with several stationary viewing opportunities from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in G-3 parking lot, corner of 6th Ave. S. and 11th St. S. Two telescope stations using solar filters will be set up for viewing, and eight stations will utilize shared eclipse glasses for safe viewing.

Please, do not look directly at the sun.

Safe watching!

Watch the Great American Eclipse Safely Aug. 21

Posted on August 11, 2017

Free viewing begins at 11:30 a.m. on MSUM campus 

The Great American Eclipse marks the first day of classes at Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) Monday, Aug. 21. Most Americans with clear skies will be able to observe a total or partial solar eclipse. Fargo-Moorhead will experience a partial solar eclipse with just over 80 percent of the sun being blocked from view.

Solar eclipses occur when the moon passes directly between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow that hits the Earth’s surface. Since it is never safe to look directly at the sun, MSUM’s Department of Physics and Astronomy is holding a viewing on campus.  Read the rest of this entry →
