Looking for a Place to View NASA’s Coverage of the Solar Eclipse? Head Over to Harrison Libraries Today

All are welcome to stop in at Harrison Libraries today to view the total solar eclipse on the big screen beginning at noon.

Gather around the large TV monitor in Mortensen Library, enjoy “moon” cookies and “cosmic” brownies, and watch a livestream of NASA TV’s four-hour coverage of the eclipse’s path of totality AND live footage from our own University of Hartford Eclipse Ballooning project team!

The University’s team is in Paducah, Ky., this morning to launch a balloon carrying a video camera from one of the spots where the eclipse is expected to be in totality for the longest amount of time.

As the moon completely covers the sun across the U.S., we’ll see both NASA’s live coverage of the eclipse on one side of the screen, with the other side featuring live footage from the NASA-sponsored team that includes two UHart students and three professors.

We hope you can join us for this “astronomical” event!
