Planned Events

Join SIU Carbondale for a four-day total solar eclipse festival at the Solar Eclipse Crossroads of America on the centerline of the path of totality. The SIU Carbondale campus will experience 4 minutes and 9 seconds of totality as the region is cast into darkness in the middle of the day. Be prepared to witness the full range of total solar eclipse phenomenon and have your senses and emotions overwhelmed by the unexplainable experience of standing in the shadow of the Moon as you watch the Sun disappear.
