Do you have plans for Monday, August 21? In case you’ve been living under a rock, on August 21, all of North America will experience a rare celestial event– a solar eclipse! Check out the Library’s display case for a Solar Eclipse-themed exhibit with photographs from the 1940s solar eclipse in Bozeman and other fascinating eclipse materials. Below, we have compiled a list of viewing opportunities and events happening at the MSU Library.
- Live stream the eclipse here!
- Pick-up your eclipse glasses a the Library, limit two per person
- Create a Pinhole Projection Box
The MSU Library is partnering with the Eclipse Ballooning Project to stream the solar eclipse live from space! Visit the new CyberDISCovery on the first floor of the MSU Library to watch the eclipse! Visit this link to learn all about the ballooning project.
The Physics Department will have a live viewing event outdoors, just outside the Library!
Happy Eclipse Viewing!
