TOPPENISH, Wash-- - The solar eclipse is only 3 days away and people are starting to look for places where they can see the eclipse.
Heritage University will be hosting a eclipse viewing party on Monday at 9 a.m. the same day that fall semester starts on campus.
The University wants for students to have the opportunity to enjoy the eclipse. They will also be providing students with viewing glasses.
There is a limited amount of glasses which is why the staff will be asking students that if they leave the viewing area, they must leave the glasses. The reason for this is so that all of the students can enjoy watching the eclipse.
“We may get really dark here and we wanted to provide everybody on campus the opportunity to watch the eclipse be part of this once in a lifetime experience safely on campus,” said David Mance, Media Relations Coordinator at Heritage University.
Viewers will be able to see the solar eclipse at 96 percent coverage at 10:24 a.m.
