Along with the rest of the country, members of the UMBC community came together to try to catch a glimpse of August’s total eclipse of the sun. Although Maryland was not in the “path of totality,” the 80% view from Catonsville still elicited the “oohs” and “ahs” of bespectacled Retrievers in front of the Albin O. Kuhn Library – where staff offered demonstrations in pinhole viewer construction – and around campus.
Members of the AOK Library staff demonstrated how to make a cereal box eclipse viewer.
Some brought colandars and other kitchen tools to capture the eclipse in unique ways.
Looks like nighttime, but this is during the height of UMBC’s 80% view of the 2017 eclipse.
Folks from all over campus gathered in front of the AOK Library to catch the eclipse with friends.
Members of the visual arts department found additional ways of capturing the eclipse on film.
