UNG invites public to eclipse viewing Monday

By Caleb Hutchins Assistant News Director

The University of North Georgia is inviting the public to come view Monday's solar eclipse on the school's Dahlonega campus.

Clark Leonard, director of news and communications for the university, said anyone is invited to come to Rogers Hall on the campus between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. to view the eclipse using the school's telescopes or eclipse glasses. The estimated peak of the eclipse in Dahlonega is around 3:00 p.m.

North Georgia is not in the line of totality for the event, but Dahlonega is expected to see an 84 percent partial eclipse.

The school is also offering an "Einstein and Eclipses" show at the George E. Coleman, Sr. Planetarium through April 12. Reservations for one of those shows can be made on the school's website.
