On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross the United States from coast to coast, and the BGSU Firelands campus in Huron, Ohio, will be in the path of totality. This means we will have the best view of the eclipse, as the moon completely covers the sun and creates a stunning spectacle of light and shadow.

BGSU Firelands is finalizing details related to opportunities to view this historic event from our campus. In the meantime, visit the links below for more information about statewide and local programming related to the eclipse.

Total Solar Eclipse Viewing Guide

Wear your eclipse glasses during parital phases when looking at the sun. Even a sliver is too bright!
For the three minutes of totality between 3:11-3:14 p.m., it is safe to look directly at the sun without your eclipse glasses.
