Eclipse Broadcast Watch Party

On the afternoon of August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the entire United States, from Oregon to South Carolina. Our state will serve as the exit state for this natural phenomenon. Anchored in Columbia and hosted by Beryl Dakers, SCETV and South Carolina Public Radio will broadcast a multi-city live event for television and radio. With stories and reports from Clemson to Charleston, your public broadcasting stations will let you experience the eclipse throughout the path of totality in South Carolina. 

  • Charleston
    Monday, August 21, 2017 - 7:30pm to 10:00pm

    School of Sciences and Mathematics Auditorium, College of Charleston, 202 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC 29424

    Co-hosted by the Department of Physics and Astronomy, College of Charleston. The eclipse excitement doesn’t have to end when the sun comes back out! ETV Endowment members are invited to join us for a special watch party the night of the eclipse. We will begin the evening with a discussion with Dr. Laura Penny, a College of Charleston astronomer, to help put what we experienced in context. Questions are welcome! Next, we will watch SCETV’s coverage of the eclipse to discover how South Carolina residents, flora, and fauna reacted to this natural event. Finally, we will watch the premiere of a special NOVA episode, Eclipse Over America, for a scientific perspective on the celestial mechanism behind this total solar eclipse and what it can tell us about the inner workings of our sun. Space is limited; early registration is strongly recommended.
