August 21, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Location: Student Center Green Space

August 21 is the first day of fall semester at Auburn. It also happens to be the day of a historic, out-of-this-world event — a solar eclipse. To celebrate the occasion, the College of Sciences and Mathematics and the Jule Collins Smith Museum are partnering on the “2017 Eclipse Across America” national event as part of Auburn's Welcome Week activities. The event will be held on the Student Center Green Space from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and will promote eclipse safety and build community through the sciences and arts. The peak of the solar eclipse for the Auburn area is at 1:36 p.m. Approved safety glasses will be distributed while supplies last, and physics faculty will be on hand to answer eclipse-related questions. There will also be games, giveaways, a photo booth, and make-and-take keepsakes to commemorate the occasion. The Auburn University event hashtag is #AUsolareclipse. Visit for eclipse viewing safety tips, and go to the Eclipse Across America at Auburn University event website for the most up-to-date information. You can also join the Facebook event.
