Solar Eclipse Viewing Event at Reinhardt University on April 8

On April 8th, Reinhardt University extends an invitation to the general public to observe the solar eclipse directly from its campus premises. This event promises to be a thrilling celestial spectacle. Although Georgia does not lie directly in the path of the total solar eclipse, between 1:47 and 4:21 p.m., a partial eclipse offers the opportunity to witness a captivating exhibition that can be observed from the Reinhardt campus.

Approximately 3:05 p.m. will mark the pinnacle of the eclipse, during which the moon will obscure a remarkable 81% of the sun, illuminating the surrounding area with an ethereal radiance. Reinhardt University has arranged a gathering on the lawn of the Bannister Glasshouse from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in order to capitalize on this exceptional occasion—an eclipse viewing night.

A limited quantity of complimentary eclipse glasses will be disseminated by RU Student Activities in the vicinity of the Bannister Glasshouse to guarantee that all individuals may appreciate the spectacle in a secure manner. From 4:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., or while supplies last, these glasses will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis. As severe eye damage can result from staring directly at the sun without eclipse spectacles, Reinhardt stresses the significance of using appropriate eye protection during the eclipse. Notably, standard spectacles do not provide sufficient protection, and eclipse glasses that have been utilized in the past may be compromised.

Reinhardt University not only supplies attendants with eclipse spectacles but also strongly advises against utilizing smartphones or cameras to document the occasion, urging them to wholeheartedly engage in the experience. Alternatively, they advise individuals to fully appreciate the moment and observe the remarkable occurrence with their own eyes.
