The next in a series of talks on the upcoming total eclipse this April is set for Friday on the SIU-Carbondale campus.

Cori Brevik is an assistant professor of practice in the School of Physics and Applied Physics and one of the series organizers. He says this event will focus on a student-made video that showcases the lead-up to the 2017 total solar eclipse at SIU and the events that happened during the 2 minutes and 38 seconds of totality.

A discussion led by faculty members about what to expect during the April 8, 2024, total solar eclipse will follow the video presentation.

The “Journey to the Eclipse” talk is set for 3 p.m. Friday at the Guyon Auditorium in Morris Library. The series is free and open to the campus and public.

Future presentations are set for 3 p.m. on the first Friday of each month at the Guyon Auditorium. A bonus event is set for October 13 and will focus on a partial solar eclipse set for that month.
