With partial support from NLSI, Jack Burns LUNAR team and Mihaly Horanyi’s CCLDAS team, the lunar science community is hosting one of the largest and most unique EPO event the institute has ever seen.

Projections are that well over 10,000 people will view the May 20 86% eclipse from the Univ. of Colorado football stadium.
NLSI teams have arranged for the whole football stadium of the University of Colorado to host the eclipse viewing (along with hotdog eating, trivia contests, giveaways, etc.). All for free!

Two TV stations will broadcast in English and Spanish, providing the country’s only live web feed of a solar image that we know of.

Part of the stadium faces the Rocky Mountains, and 10,000 people will be wearing eclipse glasses, watching the sun will set over the Rockies while eclipsed. It should be a great view.

CU’s Sommers Bausch Observatory will broadcast live streaming video from its solar telescope, in both visible light and H alpha. Here’s the link: http://cosmos.colorado.edu/sbo/public/live.eclipse.html
