Eclipse Viewing and Foreshadowing Event

Aug 2, 2017

Elizabethtown Community and Technical College will be at the epicenter for viewing the eclipse in Elizabethtown on August 21. Everyone who comes to campus that day to be part of the viewing will receive special eclipse-viewing glasses, to enable people to safely watch this rare celestial event.

In addition to the spectacular eclipse viewing itself, visitors will learn about eclipses from several points of view in the FORESHADOWING event, a part of the college’s continuing LEAF-STEM (Lectures and Exploration Activities For-Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) initiative.  FORESHADOWING begins at 11 a.m. in Room 212 of the Regional Postsecondary Center,
