With the moon passing between Earth and the sun and blocking the sun’s light from reaching Earth, darkness in the middle of the daytime causes all of us to take pause and wonder at the movements of the stars, moon and sun. On April 8, a large portion of North America will be in the path of totality during the solar eclipse, including Syracuse. Syracuse University astronomers and physicists will be taking advantage of this rare opportunity to observe, wonder and appreciate the beauty of a total eclipse of the sun.

On Thursday, March 28 at 3:30 p.m. EST, join physics professor Denver Whittington, Jada Garafolo ’25, Julia Fancher ’26 and Nico O’Neill ’25 to learn about what to look for on April 8, and how to enjoy the eclipse even if you aren’t in the path of totality.
