Physics Dept Hosts Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

On August 21, 2017, the Department of Physics hosted a solar eclipse viewing party to witness a partial solar eclipse as seen from Winston Salem, NC. Though maximum eclipse was obscured by cloud cover, department members were able to capture a few images utilizing 8″ schmidt-cassegrain telescopes with solar filters.
