Event: Total Solar Eclipse with K-State

Total Solar Eclipse with K-State website

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. Cost is $25 per student and preregistration is required.

Publicity Statement

Registration for this event gives consent for photographs, publicity and inclusion on the participant list unless K-State Global Campus is notified in writing prior to the start date.

Special Assistance
