Tickets for Eclipse Day at Saluki Stadium

The first total solar eclipse over the U.S. since 1979 will reach its point of greatest duration on Aug. 21, 2017, just a few miles south of Carbondale. The view from SIU, which is hosting a wide variety of events leading up to, and on the day of the 2017 eclipse, will be spectacular. NASA Eclipse 2017, the Adler Planetarium of Chicago and the Louisiana Space Consortium could have selected any spot along the path of totality to provide programming and conduct scientific experiments, but they all chose to partner with SIU Carbondale.

Join NASA Eclipse 2017, the Adler Planetarium of Chicago and the Louisiana Space Consortium for Eclipse Day at Saluki Stadium!
