PROTECT YOUR EYES! YOU DON'T GET A SECOND SET!
NEVER LOOK AT THE PARTIAL PHASES OF THE ECLIPSE WITHOUT APPROPRIATE EYE PROTECTION!
Mountain View, Mo will be within the April 8, 2024 eclipse totality
Mt. View's Duration of Totality: 2 minutes, 16 seconds -- (eclipse2024.org)
Other SBU campuses will experience a partial eclipse only.
Salem at 99.1%, Springfield at 97.3%, and Bolivar will be at 96.1%
Never look directly at the sun. Use appropriate eye protection. Regular sunglasses DO NOT provide any protection. Even for a partial eclipse of 99%, the sun is strong enough to burn through your retinas.
According to NASA , the only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters.
