Carbondale is in the path of totality for not one, but two, total solar eclipses. The first total solar eclipse over the U.S. since 1979 will reach its point of greatest duration on Aug. 21 just a few miles south of the Carbondale campus. The next solar eclipse will happen on April 8, 2024. The centerlines of totality for both of these eclipses intersect over Cedar Lake, which is also a short distance south of SIU.
Festivities for the 2017 eclipse will include the Crossroads Eclipse 2017 Research Workshop, the Crossroads Astronomy, Science and Technology Expo, the Crossroads Art and Craft Fair and Eclipse Comic Con 2017.
Among SIU’s partners for the eclipse are NASA, the Adler Planetarium of Chicago, the Louisiana Space Consortium and Planetary Radio. The NASA EDGE global webcast of the eclipse will originate from just outside Saluki Stadium.
