This summer, on August 21st, a total solar eclipse will pass over northeast Georgia. This is an almost once in a life opportunity to see this unusual event! The eclipse will be about 97% total at the GSU campus, but will be completely total in Dillard, Georgia. Astronomers from the Department of Physics and Astronomy will be in Dillard on the campus of Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School and on the GSU campus in Atlanta to narrate and explain the event. Mark it on your calendar! As more details become available, look for updates here. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Ben McGimsey at mcgimsey@astro.gsu.edu.
