Star Party Tonight At MTSU

Friday, 11 August 2017

In anticipation of the August 21st total solar eclipse, MTSU's Department of Physics and Astronomy will be holding a Star Party starting at 7:30 tonight in the McWherter Learning Resources Center Room 221.  Because of the heightened interest in the total solar eclipse, the event is at a special time and location.  The public is invited to all the events.  MTSU Star parties are a way for the department to bring the campus, Murfreesboro and surrounding communities together, with faculty sharing about planets, the sun, moon and other celestial objects and phenonema. 
Professor John Wallin will share Observing and Photographing The Solar Eclipse.  Bring your cameras, tripods and binoculars for a hands on practice session.  for more information visit
