Step into history as the skies over Angelo State transform into a celestial wonderland!

While we won’t experience a total solar eclipse, San Angelo will be treated to a captivating partial eclipse. The moon will block more than 97% of the sun, creating a stunning sight in the sky.

Although the total eclipse path will be to our east, we’re thrilled to offer you a chance to witness this awe-inspiring cosmic display from various viewing locations across campus. More details to come!

Eye Safety

During a solar eclipse, it’s important to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. Looking directly at the sun, even during an eclipse, can seriously hurt your eyes and even cause permanent damage.

To keep your eyes safe, you must use special eclipse glasses or solar filters to safely watch a solar eclipse. These glasses have special lenses that block harmful light, allowing you to enjoy the eclipse without any worries. Remember, never use regular sunglasses or homemade filters for eclipse watching – only certified eclipse glasses or approved solar filters will keep your eyes out of harm’s way!

If you are in the path of totality, you can safely remove your eclipse glasses or solar filters during totality, but you must have them on at all other times.
