Rare sight captivates GSU
Unity and amazement filled the atmosphere Monday, August 21 as thousands of Georgia State University (GSU) students and faculty gathered to witness the solar eclipse. The last solar eclipse that could be seen from the United States happened on February 26, 1979. Across campus, eyes turned toward the sky to get a glimpse of a rare, stunning phenomenon. For those who didn’t bring protective glasses, GSU had a limited supply available. Even then, there were plenty of people happy to share. The next eclipse that we’ll be able to see will be on October 14, 2023.
