WCSU to host eclipse-viewing event

On Monday, April 8, Danbury will experience a deep partial solar eclipse of about 93%. The Western Connecticut State University community and general public are invited to witness the partial solar eclipse on the WCSU Midtown campus, 181 White St. in Danbury. Weather permitting, astronomy instructors and volunteers will lead safe solar viewing and eclipse-related activities from 1:45 to 4:45 p.m. outside the Science Building. Maximum eclipse occurs about 3:26 p.m.

WCSU Astronomy Professor Noreen Grice reminds the public that sky-watchers should not look up at the sun without a safe solar filter or eclipse glasses. Regular sunglasses do not offer enough protection, either. A limited number of eclipse glasses will be available for sale at the WCSU event.
