UMBC Unites for Solar Eclipse Spectacle

UMBC Witnesses Eclipse: A Dance of Sun and Moon

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) recently hosted a rare astronomical event: a solar eclipse, which excited our academic community. With safety being our top priority, UMBC honored the event by distributing protective eclipse glasses to ensure that everyone could enjoy the spectacle safely. Students, faculty, and staff gathered on the greens, eyes skyward as the moon made its majestic transit across the sun.

This extraordinary gathering exemplified UMBC's culture of inquiry and togetherness. As the moon cast its shadow, the daylight faded. It also provided as a stark reminder of the awe and scale of everything that is around us.

The solar eclipse watching was more than simply a scientific exercise; it was a unique opportunity for social thought and inspiration. UMBC hope to create additional events that showcase the connection between education, community, and the natural environment around us.

Join us as we continue to explore and celebrate the wonders of the cosmos and the pursuit of knowledge here at UMBC. #UMBCeclipse #InnovativeLearning #CommunityEngagement
