Great American Solar Eclipse Watching Party

Great American Solar Eclipse Watching Party

Student Legacy Park

A total solar eclipse is a rare natural phenomenon that most people will experience only once in a lifetime. As totality approaches, you will see the astonishing sight of day turning to night and the Sun's corona blazing in the sky.

Experience the total solar eclipse from Student Legacy Park, a great viewing location on campus, and get free solar eclipse glasses (while supplies last). Oregon State’s Corvallis campus is in the path of totality, where the sky will go dark for about 2 minutes just before 10:17 a.m. Join the party as the moon begins covering the sun at about 9:00 a.m., and enjoy outdoor games and activities for the family. Bring blankets or low lawn chairs for seating.

Free parking available on a first-come, first-served basis; parking permits will not be required (no RVs or overnight camping).
