Total Solar Eclipse Watch Party
April 8 | 1-4:30 p.m.
Doyt Perry Stadium
On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross the United States from coast to coast, and Bowling Green, Ohio will be in the path of totality. This means we will have the best view of the eclipse, as the moon passes directly between the Earth and the sun, completely covering the sun and casting its shadow onto the surface of the Earth.
BGSU will host a large-scale watch party during the hours before and after our three minutes of totality. This family-friendly event will include a variety of fun and educational activities, demonstrations, music, telescope viewing, food, and more! Solar eclipse glasses will be provided for safe viewing, free of charge for all in attendance. Free eclipse glasses will also be available for all BGSU students, faculty and staff in the weeks preceding the eclipse. More details to come.
Free and open to the public.
Visit the State of Ohio's solar eclipse website or the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce solar eclipse website for more information about statewide and local programming related to the eclipse.
