PhD in Astronomy candidate Mitchell Young spearheaded the public viewing event, which provided an opportunity for members of the university community and the public to safely view the partial eclipse through the lens of a telescope or safety glasses. Visitors also had the opportunity to experience the eclipse totality through a head-mounted HTC Vive connected to Google Earth Virtual Reality.
