TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE 2017 (from Orangeburg SC)

August 21, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:15 pm

MONDAY, AUGUST 21st – http://eclipse.scsu.edu/

Monday, August 21 will be unlike any other usual August day. While temperatures may be pleasantly warm, the afternoon sun lit sky in Orangeburg will turn dark for more than two minutes, starting at 2:43 p.m.

The solar eclipse will be the first in nearly a century to occur in the United States, along a path which will extend coast to coast. The campus of SC State University will have the rare opportunity to witness this spectacular event as Orangeburg falls within the path of totality.

If you are looking for an ideal location to view the solar eclipse, then certainly consider joining us at Oliver C. Dawson Stadium. Learn more.
