Three WKU students used the historic eclipse as a way to bond and spend time together.
Around 7.4 million people were estimated to travel on Monday to see the eclipse, coming from all over the world toward the path of totality, according to the Great American Eclipse website.
The solar eclipse on Monday will be a sight of historical significance, and photographers will flock to the crowds of people viewing the eclipse to take pictures of their reactions and the eclipse itself to commemorate the event.
It was March 2016 and WKU Hardin Planetarium Director Richard Gelderman and a group of other faculty and students went house to house looking for a colander in Indonesia, asking in their poorly accented Indonesian along the way.
As Monday's total solar eclipse approaches, WKU Parking and Transportation has been preparing for large crowds and parking difficulties.
Ronn Kistler is the Planetarium Coordinator of WKU’s Hardin Planetarium. The planetarium has presented eclipse shows, free to the public, throughout the summer in preparation for Eclipse Day.
The WKU Eclipse Committee has been planning for Monday’s total solar eclipse for over two years.
