VIEW THE NEXT SOLAR ECLIPSE WITH UNT PHYSICS!
April 8, 2024, Total Eclipse
The eclipse will begin around 12:20 pm, totality is around 1:40 pm, and the eclipse will end around 3 pm.
There will be activities on-campus for those who cannot travel and off-campus - stay tuned!
Denton is just outside the path of totality. The Moon will block 99.8% of the Sun in Denton, which will be a spectacular experience, but is IS NOT the same as totality. We encourage you to travel to totality if you are able.
We will also partner with UT Dallas and host activities on UTD campus (100% totality) through an NSF-supported project: http://physics.unt.edu/~yl0657/PAARE/eclipse.html
DO NOT VIEW A SOLAR ECLIPSE WITHOUT PROTECTION FROM CERTIFIED SOLAR GLASSES

October 14, 2023 Partial Eclipse
We were able to view a partial solar eclipse in the DFW area last year. The Moon blocked 86% of the Sun in Denton. We held two events - an on-campus event in the lawn in front of the Physics Building, and an off-campus event at the Rafes Urban Astronomy Center (RUAC). Both events were well attended! We also live-streamed a telescope view, which was shown at the UNT Football game, now lovingly referred to as the "Eclipse Bowl."
