It's the End of the World!

Just Kidding...But Something Big is Happening

April is known as the month of pranks and practical jokes, but this month we have something truly special to celebrate. On April 8th, there will be a total solar eclipse that will be one of the biggest astronomical events in the history of the United States. Many cities have been busy preparing for this event, so whether you are in the path of totality or outside of it, you should take a moment to go outside and look up (with proper protection, of course) and marvel at the special relationship between the Sun, Earth, and Moon. You can check out this website to find out what the eclipse will look like from your location and the exact times from first contact to last contact. As an online university, we have members from all over the world, and we want to showcase how we come together for science. We will be posting pictures from our group members next week, so stay tuned!
