SOLAR ECLIPSE ON AUGUST 21, 2017
The remainder of the state will have a partial eclipse of the sun. Plans are being made to observe this eclipse at two locations. One site is on campus in Carrollton, Georgia (west Georgia), where about 95% of the solar disk will be covered at mid-eclipse. As part of its public service which has been a major role of the West Georgia Observatory since 1979, telescopes equipped with solar filters and solar shades will be available for students, faculty and staff, and the community to observe the eclipse. Another group of West Georgia faculty and students will travel to the path of totality and transport portable telescopes. Although the northeastern section of the State of Georgia is in the path of totality, the most readily accessible locations for many observers are in South Carolina via I-20 or I-85.
