Eclipse Academy

11 a.m., Science Building on South Campus

The science faculty of North Arkansas College will provide a 40-minute educational program on the science behind the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse.  A total solar eclipse occurs when the sun, moon, and Earth are in a direct line. The moon completely blocks the sun and the sky will darken as if it were night. A total solar eclipse is only visible to a small area on Earth. This area is the umbra and often referred to as the path of totality. Come learn unique aspects that make Harrison, Arkansas on this year’s path of totality.
