NASA to Broadcast Eclipse From CofC

The broadcast will be streamed on NASA TV, the NASA website, on the Stream video platform  and on various public broadcasting stations across the United States beginning at 1 p.m. on Aug. 21, 2017.

The NASA broadcast will be part of the College’s eclipse viewing celebration on Rivers Green behind Addlestone Library from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. that day.

NASA will have correspondents and scientists stationed across the nation to provide live updates of the eclipse during the telecast. The NASA “headquarters” for the national broadcast will originate from Rivers Green.

“The College is so thrilled to have NASA broadcasting from our campus during the upcoming total solar eclipse,” said College of Charleston President Glenn F. McConnell ’69. “This will be a once-in-a-lifetime event that our students, faculty, and staff will remember for the rest of their lives. To be able to share this moment with NASA specialists not only adds to the significance of the occasion, but deeply enriches the student experience we provide at the College.”
