On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature's most awe-inspiring sights: a total solar eclipse. Kansas State University and the Flint Hills Discovery Center will be joining together with Highland Community College to provide a day of great education and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona -, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.
The registration fee for this event is $35 for the general public and $25 for K-State students. Meals are not included. Kindergarten through 12th grade students may attend with a registered adult participant. Preregistration is required.
