Harper College is holding a viewing event for the upcoming solar eclipse.
Three telescopes equipped with solar filters will be set up, and a limited quantity of solar viewers will be available. The community is invited to bring a picnic and catch the eclipse, weather permitting.
While the eclipse’s path of totality on August 21 will pass through the Carbondale area in Southern Illinois, viewers at Harper will see the moon obscure up to 87 percent of the sun at about 1:18 p.m.
Monday, August 21 at 12:00pm to 2:00pm
