What’s Happening

  • Prepare for the eclipse

    There will be an eclipse Aug. 21. The eclipse will begin in our area at 1:23 p.m., eclipse maximum at 2:44 p.m. and end at 4 p.m. For West Point and the surrounding area, it is only a partial eclipse, about 77% totality.

     

    If you want to view the eclipse safely, you have three options:

    1. Obtain or build a pinhole viewer.

    2. Get a pair of ISO and CE Certified Solar Eclipse glasses. Some may be found online.

    3. View the eclipse through a telescope with an appropriate solar-viewing capable filter.

     

    The Department of Physics and Nuclear Engineering will be located on the West Point Plain to share a small number of pinhole viewers. D/PaNE is streaming the eclipse live on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/USMA.PANE. Read More
