The university town of Columbia, Missouri is in the throes of total eclipse-mania this weekend, in preparation for Monday’s big event! CCSU astronomy professor Kristine Larsen and department alumna Jessica Johnson are among the thousands of eclipse enthusiasts who have descended upon Columbia in anticipation of the Great American Eclipse. The city has rolled out the red carpet in preparation of its day in the sun. While some businesses are advertising special eclipse viewing events, others are planning to be closed during the eclipse, in order to allow their employees to watch alongside all the out-of-town visitors.
Wherever you are planning to view the eclipse from, please be safe and have a great time!
