Chasing the Stars: The Ultimate Guide to Safely Viewing the 2024 Solar Eclipse at Our University

On April 8, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., the University Health Service will be closed for one hour in the afternoon to allow staff to partake in the excitement of the 2024 Solar Eclipse. During this time, Dr. Ethan Beaudett, our Medical Chief, will be on-call to handle any urgent calls received by our answering service. Normal operations will resume at 4:00 p.m.

We encourage everyone to take advantage of this historic event and witness it safely! It is important to remember to protect your eyes during a solar eclipse to prevent any long-term damage to your vision. Professor James Zavislan, an expert in optics and biomedical engineering, as well as ophthalmology, explains how eclipse glasses work to shield your eyes from the sun’s harmful light.

If you need eclipse glasses for the upcoming total solar eclipse, you can obtain up to two pairs with a University ID from various locations on the River Campus and at the Eastman School of Music. Make sure to protect your eyes during this extraordinary event!
