The viewing event held on the south lawn of Jordan Hall of Science during the Great American Solar Eclipse was a resounding success. It is estimated that nearly 3,000 people visited the event to look at the sun through the telescope and to receive free eclipse glasses. It was standing-room only for the talk of Prof. Grant Mathews as well. Special thanks goes to all of the volunteers--faculty, students, staff, and friends--who helped to keep the crowd moving.
