We need your help to share one of Earth's rarest events with the public! During the sun's peak, at 1:13 PM on August 21, 2017, 96% of the sun will be covered by the moon. It will become darker in the middle of the day, birds may begin to chirp, and you may get to witness one of nature's rarest events. A large-scale, free public event will be held at Missouri State's Plaster Stadium for viewing the solar eclipse from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM on 8/21/17. Entertainment and activities will also be provided.
Donations will assist in the purchase of special viewing glasses so everyone can safely watch the eclipse, filters for the telescopes so the public can view the eclipse with magnification, and funding to transport K-12 students who want to attend the event. The more funds raised, the better this event will be for everyone!
If you have any questions about the campaign, please contact Laura Rios at LauaRios@Missouristate.edu.
*In addition, MSU alumni that make a qualifying gift of $25 or more receive an Active Alumni Member card.
